Pet cats shot with air weapon in Moray

Police have condemned the "cruel and senseless" shooting of two cats with an air weapon in Moray.

The pet cats were targeted in the Findochty area and needed treatment from a vet.

An air weapon was also fired on Crown Terrace, Portgordon, but no-one was injured as a result.

Grampian Police, who appealed for witnesses, said there could be no excuse and such actions would not be tolerated.
