An animal charity is appealing for information after a cat was shot and killed with an air rifle in Essex.
Wilma, a 10-year-old tabby, was discovered at the Ongar allotments on Friday May 1 at about 9.20am having last been seen by her owner earlier that morning.
A bang, which may have been the weapon, was heard around 8.50am.
"Poor Wilma was shot with a high-velocity air rifle which just missed the heart. It seems likely someone was aiming straight for her.
"Unfortunately this kind of thing is more common than we would like - cats, like wildlife, are more vulnerable to such attacks simply because they are out there in the open, unprotected."

A neglected dog has been found abandoned and tied to the back of a car in the middle of the night in Cambridgeshire.
RSPCA inspectors said two-year-old Saluki, who has been renamed Louis, was discovered attached by his lead to the bumper of a car parked on the High Street at West Wratting, near Cambridge.
The owner of the vehicle called the charity at about midnight on Tuesday March 17.
The dog was thin, with a lacklustre coat, eat mites and a bad cut to his foot. He had no microchip or tag.
"Not only was this poor dog dumped without any care - but he was left in an incredibly dangerous place in the middle of the night.
"It was so lucky that the car owner managed to spot poor Louis before he drove off."
