Hi Solosdad

I meant to mention after signing your petition about contacting the Gun Control Network (if you have not already) Their objective is to campaign for tighter controls on guns of all kinds in Britain and a greater awareness of the dangers associated with gun ownership and use.

I noticed they they do monitor airgun crime against animals - so they may be able to offer advice  :hug:

hi edd have taken a look at the website but am trying to send an email to them using there email details but it keeps coming back to me as a failed email address do you have any other email or contact details for them   cheers paul

Hi Solosdad

Really sorry to hear about your cat, how awful.

Have you thought about contacting the League against cruel sports? I used to work for them and think it's something they would be interested in. They also have a big facebook following so they could get the petition out to more people. Their email is info@league.org.uk.
oh no sorry i not heard of them but i will get in touch to see what they can do thanks for the information its very much appreciated

please read and sign my petition  you can find it here please help to make a difference and put an end to pain and suffering caused by these weapons in the hands of idiots i lost my own cat by some one using one of these shot twice with severe injuries and had to be put to sleep so am calling on you to put an end to it as it could just be your pet that is shot next after all if it was a human it would be classed as murder .
