We want to first and foremost say this is NOT the kind of post we want to be writing about. We’d prefer that all the news we provide here is good news. However, when a cat is shot 16 times it’s something we have to report because if there isn’t more awareness of cruelty like this then heinous pet crimes are going to continue to happen.
In the areas of Avon and Somerset in Bristol, UK details have been released of a horrific shooting. The owner of the male ginger tabby cat was in her garden at Albert Road, Weston-super-Mare, at around 9.15am on May 6 when she saw the cat fall off the wall of her property and scream in pain, lying unable to move.
She then rushed to the vet to discover that the cat had been shot 16 times with a pellet gun. The wounds were too severe and the pet had to be put to sleep. The police are now looking to the public for help in tracking down those who did this.
Anyone who can help should call police on 101, quoting crime reference number 43226/13, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 55511. Please share this with anyone you know in the UK.
