SARTELL, MN (KNSI) - Police are looking for the person responsible for shooting a cat in the head with a BB gun Wednesday night.
It all happened in the 700 block of Sartell's 10th Street South. Someone shot the cat, named Penny, in the head at close range. The BB went through the cat's skull, behind her jawbone, and lodged in her lip, causing her right eye to pop out of socket.
A veterinarian was able to remove the BB and stitch the eye closed. It's too early to say if the cat will ever have vision in that eye again. Penny's owner says she's "shocked and upset" about what happened.
Sartell police don't have any suspects.
