A pet cat has lost an eye after being shot with a catapult.
The owners of five year old Sox found him seriously injured near their home in Swindon on Wednesday 12 July.
They thought he'd been injured while fighting with another cat, but a vet found he'd been shot with a ball bearing, thought to have been fired by a catapult.
Owner Ron Schofield said he was upset and angry that his "beloved pet" had been targeted.
The RSPCA is investigating.
“We are really keen to try and find out who is responsible and urge anyone who has any information about who did this to contact us in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018.”
