A teenage girl has been locked up after she shot dead her neighbour’s cat with a crossbow during a drinking spree. Chloe O’Connor, 19, has been drinking when she spotted the ginger cat, called Trouble, on her garden fence.
She grabbed the crossbow – which has been given to her by her boyfriend as a gift – and loaded it with a lethal metal bolt. O’Connor then aimed it out of the window of her flat and opened fire from 20 yards away hitting the animal. The bolt pierced his stomach and came out of the other side though the injured cat managed to drag itself part of the way home before it collapsed and died.
