Percy, a stray Siamese in Oakland, California, lost his leg after someone heartlessly shot him with a pellet gun, creating a wound that became so infected, vets had to amputate.

Sadly, Percy is just one victim of a serial cat shooter(s) on the loose.

Four felines in the area, all male, have been found shot by pellet guns in just the last month and a half. One was hit in the spine and had to be put down — and Oakland Animal Services believes there may be more victims who remain undiscovered.

“Violence against animals is one of the strongest indicators for other crimes and violent acts,” said Oakland Animal Services director Rebecca Katz to Fox 5 News. “The cruelty of these acts is of concern to both the human and nonhuman members of Oakland’s community.”

Strays are defenseless. These vicious attacks on vulnerable populations must be taken seriously.

Friends of Oakland Animal Services is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. Anyone with information about these vicious crimes is asked to contact Oakland Animal Services at 510-535-4895.
