Hunters out of control says Animal Party

The Animal Party has said that a dog which was riddled with pellets from a hunting gun on Sunday had to have one of its legs amputated to prevent infection.
The incident happened in Eptagonia village in the Limassol district. The animal’s legs and the rear of its body bore the brunt of dozens of pellets.
Also on Sunday, the party investigated a complaint from a British resident in Tala in Paphos that a kitten had also had one of its front legs amputated after being shot near her home by an unknown person or persons. The incident was reported to police but they said they could not do anything, the Animal Party said, adding that hunters were out of control.
“When will we finally take drastic measures and send a message to these gunmen who believe that everything that moves is prey,” the party said.
