Officers are appealing for information after a cat required surgery after being shot in the head by a BB gun in Stoke-on-Trent.
Police were called shortly after 9.30am on Wednesday (17 August), to a residential property off Oakwood Road, Blurton, where the cat’s owner reported the animal being hurt earlier that day.
The cat, named Vinnie, underwent emergency medical treatment and currently remains at the vets.
PC Mountford, of Stoke-on-Trent South Local Policing Team, said: “This is a highly distressing crime that caused serious injury to a defenceless animal.
“I would encourage anyone who knows anything about this offence to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
