BENSALEM, Pa. (WPVI) -- A $1,000 reward is being offered after a cat was shot and killed in Bensalem, Bucks County.
The pet cat, named 'Scooby,' was shot between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Monday, April 10 in the area of the Creekside Apartments on Knights Road.
The Bucks County SPCA is offering the reward for information leading to a conviction.

Investigations Division to resolve this matter."
"We are asking members of the community to contact us immediately with any information about this tragic shooting so that the responsible person(s) can be held accountable for Scooby's death," said Linda Reider, Executive Director of the Bucks County SPCA.
