Police appeal after cat is shot

A pet cat had to have its leg amputated in Lound after being shot.

At around 5.20am on Friday, May 23, the cat’s owner heard what sounded like a large single gun shot close to his home. Around 6.15am the injured cat – a female tabby - was found struggling back to the property. She appeared to have been shot and this was confirmed when the animal was taken to the vet for treatment. The cat’s leg had to be amputated.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to call PC Carlo Di Franco at Lowestoft by dialling Suffolk Police on 101, quoting reference LO/14/2655.

The owner of a one-year-old tabby cat says she ‘cannot believe that someone would be so cruel’ after her beloved pet was shot twice with an airgun in Ipswich.
