The attack happened yesterday (July 5) on a farm in the Llanfair PG area of Anglesey in Wales.

 

The crossbow bolt has been removed from the cow and the animal is said to be recovering well.

 

Team leader Rob Taylor of North Wales Rural Police said: "It’s shocking the depravity of the person who did this. How anyone can seek pleasure from committing such an irresponsible act.

 

"At what point does a person think ’I’ll shoot a cow in the face with my crossbow today’? This person needs catching - and catching soon.

 

"Once we’ve recovered DNA from the bolt, it’s then time for the offender to wonder who it is, everytime their door bell goes.

 

"We appeal to the public to help us catch the irresponsible person who did this. Please call 101. Someone must know a person possibly in that area with a crossbow."
