Actu.fr reported a story that the cat of Magali Lepennetier's daughter, a resident of Sourdeval (Manche), was hit by a pellet gun bullet on Tuesday, February 21. The cat was taken to a veterinarian in Mortain for treatment, including x-rays, and it was confirmed that the cat had been shot.
"At first, I didn't see the second wound. It was the next day that I realized it. When I went back to the vet, he told me that he had a similar case in Chérencé-le-Roussel. He takes antibiotics, care twice a day. Since then, we help him to eat. He doesn't go outside anymore. He sleeps all the time. He is not well. He is afraid," Magali Lepennetier told Actu.fr.
Magali Lepennetier and her family are in the most total incomprehension. "Our cat is very nice, adorable. It hurts to see him like this. It's our ray of sunshine", she confides. Today, she wishes to make people aware of the protection of animals and their well-being. With this in mind, she decided to file a complaint against X on March 2 at the Mortain police station.
It was my father who told me to go and do it. Maybe there are others. I want to say that people are not alone in this situation.Magali Lepennetier
Magali Lepennetier's veterinarian informed her that he had been contacted by others regarding similar cases.
Magali Lepennetier, Plume's owner, points out: "If only one pellet had hit my cat, I would have thought it was a bad shot from someone playing with a pellet gun, even though we live in the heart of a housing estate. What if it was a child who got shot? I don't understand how anyone can attack animals with such malice."
