Officers are appealing for information as a cat sustained injuries after becoming stuck in a banned animal trap in the Forest of Dean.
On Wednesday (26 October) a cat named Belle had become caught in a trap near to her home in the Harrison Way area of Lydney.
The trap is suspected to be a Gin Trap which was banned in 1958 due to the extreme damage they cause.
Belle managed to crawl her way home and has since been taken to the vets however there is a chance her leg may need to be amputated.
