Earlier this week, I shared this story onhttp://www.thebay.co.uk/news/local-news/rare-domesticated-cat-shot-in-kendal-area/ Facebook,http://www.thebay.co.uk/news/local-news/rare-domesticated-cat-shot-in-kendal-area/
My first reaction was, sorrow for the owners of the cat, but on reflection, it raises more questions than it supplies answers.
Why was the person driving in possession of a loaded gun whilst driving? (Illegal in this country.)
Why shoot the cat?
Did they deliberately set out to shoot the cat?
Or did they just have in mind to shoot something?
It could have been a child playing in a garden who was shot, or anyone just going about their daily life.
That gun, if legal, should have been locked in the boot of the car.
I hope that the police catch this person.
For many reasons, they need catching, they're dangerous, the cat owner needs compensation, and the legality of the gun needs checking.
