01 May 2016
Cats and airguns - May 2016 A survey of 1,000 vets showed that many more cats are killed in air gun attacks than 20 years ago.

Almost half of vets questioned (44%) had treated cats which had been the victim of attacks by air-powered weapons in the last year, with nearly half of these shootings proving fatal (46%).

More than three-quarters (78%) of vets said that air gun injuries were more frequently inflicted on cats than other types of animal. And 86% would like to see a change to the law to restrict the sale and use of air weapons, while 78% of the general public would support the introduction of air gun licensing.
