BB Pellet found in 5 week old Kitten - The Ontario SPCA is seeking the public’s help for information

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Durham Region, ON (November 19, 2015) – The Ontario SPCA is seeking help from the public for any information that pertains to a five week-old kitten found with a BB pellet inside of him.


Approximately one and a half weeks ago, volunteers from the animal rescue group, Team Chelsea, were attempting to trap two feral kittens and the mother cat on Darlington Boulevard in Courtice, ON, in the Durham Region. The volunteers were successful in trapping one of the kittens and he was taken to a veterinarian to be examined. The kitten, now named “Sully”, was found to be extremely thin and had a BB pellet lodged in the fold of his lip area.


The BB pellet was safely removed, Sully is in the care of Team Chelsea and recovering well.


A few days later a mother cat and her kitten were found in the same area. The kitten, now named “Sly”, was found missing his tail.

The Ontario SPCA is considering the state these kittens were found in to be suspicious and is asking anyone with information on these animals to contact 310-SPCA.
