Authorities in Indiana are looking for the person who stabbed a cat in the head with pliers. 

The Indianapolis Animal Care Services (IACS) said the female gray and white short-haired feline was brought to their care after a resident found her. The resident was feeding the cat when she noticed the animal was stabbed in the head with a pair of needle-nose pliers.

A veterinarian removed the pliers and provided emergency care.
