Cat has leg amputated after being shot with bullet


A tabby cat has had to have one of his front legs amputated after being shot with a bullet in Stamford Bridge.

‘Koko’ managed to limp back home last Thursday morning despite the bone in his front right leg being shattered by the bullet.

Koko’s owner Sean, 27, of Stamford Bridge, rushed him to Battle Flatts Vets in the village. He was told Koko would have to have his leg amputated, costing £700, or be put down.
