Thanet Extra reports that perverted “sniper” with an air rifle is targeting animals In Ramsgate. He has been described as "sick" by pet owner Joyce Sewell.
Her three cats, named Boy, Sparkles and Splinter, were shot at by a hidden gunman and hit by airgun pellets near their home in Manston Road, Ramsgate.
Mrs. Sewell said: "The cats survived but they were lucky. Whoever did this is the lowest of the low. Animals are easy targets and it is appalling that someone would prey on defenceless creatures."
The family discovered their pets had been hurt after returning from a weekend away.
Mrs Sewell added: "I urge any pet owners in our area to be on their guard and to report any incidents to the RSPCA. I hope the snipe doesn’t strike again."
The RSPCA says it would prosecute anybody in connection with the shootings
