Ont. man arrested for cat shooting

A second man has been arrested in an animal cruelty case involving a cat in southwestern Ontario that suffered as many as 17 pellet wounds to the head.

The cat — named "Joe" — was rescue earlier this month in Brights Grove, east of Sarnia, and is said to be in stable condition.

A 20-year-old Sarnia man was arrested early Wednesday and police say he will be charged with two animal cruelty offences.

A 19-year-old man, also from Sarnia, was arrested last Thursday and was charged with two counts of animal cruelty.

That man was also charged with drug possession and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking after police say officers found oxycodone, codeine and marijuana during a search of his home.

The Sarnia and District Humane Society has said Joe had surgery to remove the pellets, but that the cat lost an eye due to his injuries.
