LULING, La. (AP) - St. Charles Parish deputies say a 33-year-old Luling man accused of shooting his neighbor’s cat with a bow and arrow is facing an aggravated cruelty to an animal charge.

Sheriff Greg Champagne said in a news release Cody Dupre allegedly saw a 9-month-old cat named Max walk onto his property on Monday before the man shot the animal.

Champagne says the owners rushed Max to a veterinarian’s office, and the staff was able to remove the arrow. The arrow didn’t hit any organs or sever any veins or arteries.

Dupre was arrested Wednesday, and released on a $30,000 bond.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Dupre.

Aggravated cruelty to an animal conviction can carry between one and 10 years in prison as well as a fine.
