Police are investigating after a pet cat died in a snare outside an Angus home.
The cat’s owner took to social media to condemn whoever was responsible for setting the snare in an Arbroath garden and urged people to be vigilant.
It was suggested the wire snare was set to catch an urban fox but the pet cat had become caught in it and died.
The incident happened after animal welfare charity Scottish SPCA warned against the dangers of snares.
