ANIMAL lovers in Suffolk are demanding tougher gun laws today after hooligans shot a cat in an "evil and vicious" attack.

Two-year-old Gizmo, a white tom, was targeted in a shooting that came in the same week the RSPCA announced the number of attacks on animals is on the increase.

The animal charity is now calling for a change in the law concerning airguns.

Gizmo's owner Dominic Gordon, 28, said: "I am thoroughly disgusted that some evil, vicious little thug has deemed it fun to shoot a defenceless animal.
