Cat shot in Milton of Leys area of Inverness

Police and the Scottish SPCA have appealed for information after a cat was found shot in the Milton of Leys area of Inverness.

The animal was thought to have had an air gun pellet in its body for about three weeks.

A vet had to put it to sleep because of the injuries it had suffered.

The cat's owner took it to the vet after it became unwell and an x-ray revealed the pellet.
