Cat survives shotgun attack and two broken legs

A cat suffered two broken legs and had been blasted at least twice with a shotgun, a veterinary practice in Cornwall says.

The six-year-old black tomcat, called Target by surgery staff, was brought to Hayle Veterinary Surgery in March after being found injured and unable to walk.

He had two fractured femurs and X-rays showed more than 40 pellets in the head and face and across the body.

The BBC's Andrea Ormsby reports.
