Hawaii island police and the Hawaii Island Humane Society are investigating after a cat was killed Monday by a hunting arrow in Kailua Kona.
The Humane Society received a call about the injured cat in the McDonald’s parking lot on Makala Boulevard and found someone had shot the cat with a broadhead hunting arrow. The cat had to be euthanized because of the extent of the injuries and died a “horrific death,” the Humane Society said.
The incident happened about 11 p.m., and police were notified.
The male cat was most likely feral, the Humane Society said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Roxy O’Neal at the Humane Society at 329-1175 or Hawaii County police at 935-3311.
The Human Society said it was “disturbed by the increasing number of incidents in this area, including the poisoning and torture of cats at the Kona Commons Shopping Center.”
