Call for change in gun law
A YATE woman whose cat has been shot three times in three years will campaign for a change in gun licensing laws.
Liz Jenkins wants to see new restrictions after her cat was attacked for the third time this summer.
Under the current law, anyone over 18 can own an air rifle without a licence, although the owner must only use it where they have permission to shoot.
But Liz wants to change that and plans to start a petition to bring in licensing.
She also plans to unite owners in her area to guard against more attacks after finding that there were more victims nearby.
