A CAT owner today promised to prosecute the culprits who gunned down his 18-month-old pet.
Jon Paul and Beverley Turner, of The Street, Great Bricett, discovered 'Kelly' lying dead in a field behind their home with a gunshot wound in her stomach.
She had failed to return home as normal on Tuesday, June 17 and a search was made of the local area, with leaflets requesting help posted through letterboxes.
The cat was finally located at around 8pm on Sunday and an x-ray confirmed she had been shot with what is believed to be .22 calibre rifle.
