A Pennsylvania family’s family was fatally injured on the night before Christmas Eve when someone targeted the feline with an arrow. The Carroll Valley Police Department recounted the details of the cruel incident, writing:
This is Chuck. Chuck was out for a walk on December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve, when someone shot Chuck with an arrow. Chuck was able to get back to his family at his home at 24 Crossland Trail in Carroll Valley, dragging the arrow still lodged in his abdomen.
