Three cats have been injured as the result of shots apparently fired from a pellet gun in the Codroy Valley.
Two cats were shot in the paw, while the third cat appeared to have been shot in the neck area. Police note that it is against both the Animal Health and Protection Act and the Criminal Code of Canada to cause unnecessary suffering to animals.
Port Aux Basque RCMP were informed of the matter on Friday, according to a news release issued over the weekend.
Police are seeking the public’s help to solve this case. Anyone with information about the matter is asked to contact Port Aux Basque RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
