Probe after cat poisoned with antifreeze in Alloa

Police are investigating after a cat was deliberately poisoned in Alloa.

A resident of Caledonian Road had noticed her cat acting strangely on 17 April. A vet discovered the cat was blind and its kidneys had shut down, and recommended it be put down.

When they got home to bury the cat, the owners found a plastic tub by their house containing what looked like fish and what appeared to be antifreeze.

The Scottish SPCA confirmed the cat had been poisoned, and are investigating.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "This clearly was a cruel and malicious act which caused real suffering to a well-loved family pet.

"As such if you have any information with regards to this or knowledge as to who may be responsible, please call Police Scotland."
