A cat named Mack survived having an arrow embedded in his head, and Lancaster Crime Stoppers is offering a reward to the person who helps police identify the person who shot him.

Mack was shot in the head with a field-tipped arrow about 11:25 p.m. Dec. 22 in the 300 block of Walnut Street in Bainbridge, according to Crime Stoppers.

Witnesses told officers they saw a silhouette of someone standing in the back yard of Mack's home, then saw him run toward North Second Street, police said.

The arrow went through Mack's skull at the top of his head and came out the back, police said. It was removed by a local veterinarian, police said.

While the arrow narrowly missed Mack's brain, it damaged his sinuses and he's expected to have a lifetime of sinus issues, according to police.

Anyone with information about who shot Mack is urged to call Susquehanna Regional Police at (717) 426-1164, or call Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at (800) 322-1913. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and tipsters don't have to give their names to collect rewards of up to $1,000.
