Condemnation of senseless attack on a family pet in Ballywalter

Green Party leader Steven Agnew MLA has today, Tuesday 8 August, condemned the shooting of a pet cat in Ballywalter.

The North Down MLA, who is well known for his animal welfare work said,

“I am disgusted at a senseless attack on a family pet. I cannot fathom why anyone would want to inflict such wanton cruelty.

“Any sort of cruelty against animals is unacceptable. More than that, I believe there is a link between abuse of animals and a propensity for violence towards people. There is no place for any such violence in our society.

“Anyone with information should contact PSNI or Crimestoppers.”
