A cat had its leg amputated after it was shot with an air rifle in Berkshire.

An X-ray uncovered a pellet had “smashed” five-year-old Frosty’s leg and lodged close to the hip joint.

Frosty’s owner, Carole Valette from Finchampstead, believes her pet was shot at Nine Mile Ride in the early hours of Saturday.

Ms Valette said: “Who would do such a thing? We are so sad and devastated that such a monster lives nearby.”
