Peterborough Police Looking For Information After Several Squirrels Reportedly Found With Arrows In Them

KAWARTHA LAKES-Peterborough Police are making the public aware after several disturbing incidents recently.

In the last few weeks, officers have received several reports of squirrels being found with arrows in them.

The incidents have been happening in the Western Avenue and Chamberlain Street area of Peterborough and it’s believed the weapon is a smaller compound bow and arrow (similar to photo below).

Peterborough Police remind residents of the dangers associated with shooting a high-velocity arrow in a residential neighbourhood including potentially injuring a person or other animals, both of which could result in criminal charges.

If you come across any injured wildlife, please call the Ministry of Natural Resources at 1-877-847-7667.

Anyone with information can call Peterborough Police at 705-876-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
