The RSPCA is asking for information after a cat was killed in Neath.

The pet - called Bird - was found "in severe distress" with a puncture wound between its shoulders.

He was found on the night of May 17 in the Valley View area.

A spokesperson said Bird's owner is "absolutely devastated", and says other animals in the area have been shot too.

RSPCA Cymru is deeply worried about this concerning incident in Neath, and that this is not the first such reported case of this kind in the area.

We are so sad that Bird has lost his life, and our thoughts are with Lynette Roberts and the rest of the family.

"If anyone has any information connected to this cat shooting, believed to have taken place in the evening of 17 May, they are urged to contact the RSPCA, or South Wales Police, immediately.

– Gemma Cooper, RSPCA inspector

The organisation says all calls are treated in confidence.
