PROVO, Utah — Police in Provo are asking for the public's help after two cats were found shot with blow darts recently.

Photos shared by police Thursday show a small cat with a blow dart stuck in its body. Police say this was the second instance of a cat being hit with a dart.


The dart punctured one of the cat's lungs, but it is now recovering at a shelter after being treated at Mountain West Animal Hospital.

Police ask anyone who knows who may have struck the cats with darts to contact Animal Control Officer Michelle Proctor at
