Pet cat put down after Market Drayton airgun shooting

A pet cat has been put down after being shot with an airgun in Shropshire.

A single pellet struck 16-year-old Scooby in the head, becoming lodged in her jaw, a spokesman for West Mercia Police said.

It is thought she was shot between 17:00 and 17:45 GMT on Friday in the Chancel Drive and Farcroft Drive area of Market Drayton.

Police said they would like anyone with information that might help them trace the person responsible to contact them.
