Authorities in Bucks County are trying to find who shot and killed a friendly, playful orange cat named “Scooby” earlier this week in Bensalem.


The Bucks County SPCA said Friday it is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the shooter.

The adorable male cat was shot with a gun sometime between 2 and 4 p.m. Monday in the area of the Creekside Apartments on Knights Road, the SPCA said. He regularly went in and out of his apartment home there and his owner reported that he played with the children in the apartment complex. 

When Scooby’s owner found him injured, she took him to the veterinary clinic at the Women’s Humane Society in Bensalem, but he couldn’t be saved, the SPCA said. 





Linda Reider, executive director of the Bucks County SPCA, said in a statement: “This kind of cruelty inflicted upon an innocent animal is completely unacceptable and clearly against [Pennsylvania] anti-cruelty laws.”

Tipsters should contact SPCA Humane Officer Nikki Thompson at 215-794-7425, Ext. 107.
