Police are today appealing for information after a cat was shot dead in Hatfield.

Just before 6pm on Monday, February 6, an injured cat was discovered in the rear garden of a property in Homestead Road.

The cat, named Albus, had been shot with a pellet gun and subsequently died from his injuries.

PC Kelly Woodward said: “Albus was taken to the vet by his owner and an X-ray revealed that a pellet had caused significant internal injuries and bleeding. Sadly the cat died from his injuries.

“I am appealing for anyone who has information about this incident, believes they know who is responsible or heard any loud bangs that could have been a pellet gun firing in the area around the time stated.”

To contact police call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference B2/17/615.
