And here we go again: a roaming kitten loses its leg apparently because of a hostile neighbour’s illegal leg-hold trap.

From today’s Taranaki Daily News:

A kitten believed to have been caught in a gin trap crawled home and left a pool of blood outside its two-year-old owner’s bedroom.

Just after midnight on Saturday, New Plymouth woman Kate Carrington was woken up by the sound of her son’s kitten Bear.

The cat is believed to have been caught in a gin trap, before getting itself out and making its way back home with serious injuries to two of its legs.

“I just saw her lying there and she was trying to clean her front paw because it was quite badly mangled as well,” Kate said.
