Cat Shot By Ball Bearing Gun

Posted: 17th May 2018

A cat came in to our hospital yesterday after being shot by a ball bearing gun in the Gordano School area of Portishead.

Following X-rays, our Vet discovered 10 shots throughout her body.

Both the RSPCA and the charity Cats Protection are calling for a change in the law on air guns, to bring England and Wales in line with the rest of the UK.

The charities want to see the law changed so it is illegal to buy, own or use an air gun without a licence. Sadly this cat had to be put to sleep but the owners wanted us to share the story as a warning for other cat owners in the area.
