A cat has had its leg amputated after being shot in Eastriggs.

Police Scotland are investigating an incident of cruelty, after the incident on the evening of Tuesday 18 August.

The cat managed to return home to Auckland Walk in Eastriggs, and was later taken to the vet and the leg amputated.

This is a horrific case of cruelty to animals and the cat must have suffered terribly as it made its way home after being shot.

I am appealing to anyone in the Eastriggs area who can help in this investigation to contact me at Annan Police Office through the 101 number, or if they want to remain anonymous, through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

– Constable Julie Rankin of Police Scotland
