Punish thugs who shot cat
10:05am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Opinion
THE rising number of air gun attacks on animals should concern us all.
Last year there were 799 such incidents up by 40 on 2011.
For the first six months of 2013 that figure stood at 438.
But these aren’t just statistics. The victims are often family pets.
Phoenix, a one-and-half-year-old cat from Poole, had one of his front legs amputated after he was shot.
Understandably, his family are extremely upset by the cruel attack.
Unless more severe sentences are meted out it is unlikely the situation will change.
