Waldoboro — The Waldoboro Police Department is investigating a lead involving a case of a cat shot through the head with an arrow, said Police Chief Bill Labombarde.

The cat was found on a woman's porch on Prock Road Dec. 7. Animal Control Officer Laurice Ducharme was called to retrieve the injured animal, and she brought the cat to a veterinarian. The cat died while receiving treatment.

The arrow went through the cat's head and was protruding from under its left shoulder, Labombarde said.

The police chief said he expects an arrest will be made in the case.
