Orange tabby in Woodland paralyzed by pellet gun shot

Yolo County authorities are asking for help in finding the person who paralyzed a cat by shooting it with a pellet gun.

The owners of the orange tabby named Annie were away at dinner on the night of March 13 when somebody shot their cat. When the pet owners returned to their Woodland home in the 1500 block of Owens Valley Drive they found Annie on the front porch.

She was unable to move her back legs and a bloody wound was noticeable on her shoulder. The UC Davis Small Animal Clinic diagnosed a pellet lodged next to her spine.

Tipsters who know the identity of the shooter may call the Yolo County Sheriff's Office Animal Services Section at (530) 668-5287.
