A cat returned home with a wire snare round his neck.
He didn't receive any injuries but was in a very distressed state. The snare was home-made and 'weathered' so it was thought it could have snapped when the cat was caught, or possibly someone could have cut the wire to set him free.
The cat's guardian explained that the cat never wandered past his own street, so it's likely the snare would have been set in the immediate area.
