A warning for pet owners in the Stealey neighborhood in Clarksburg.
Noir, a black cat, was shot in the back on Monday afternoon.
His owner Arika left him outside in the yard with her other cats to play like she does every day. When she came home, she and her boyfriend found Noir in the hallway crying, with a hole in his back.
“The pellet is still in his spine or near his spine and if removing it could cause more damage so right now we’re just kind of waiting to see what happens,” said Arika Bowman, Noir’s owner.
Noir has limited use of his hind legs and tail. Arika still has no idea who could have done this to her beloved pet. If you have any information please contact Clarksburg police.
