Cats shot in Waikanae – Public assistance please

From Hannah Candy

“I am not usually one to share this type of thing… But our poor little Birman was shot in the neck a few weeks ago and we just had the slug removed which confirmed our suspicions.

Luckily she is OK! After talking to our neighbour (who also had his 2 cats shot – one died consequently) and the SPCA, we have learned this has happened a few times in our area (we think it happened around the top end of Weggery Drive near Sunset Terrace area). PLEASE if you have any information or have had the same thing happen to your pet, send me a message or contact the SPCA. The police have also been notified as it is a firearms offence. We are absolutely horrified that someone could do this to innocent animals and we hope we can get some kind of lead so this person can be found out. Please share and thanks so much for reading.
