WESTPORT, Mass. (WPRI) — A stray cat that was caught in an illegal leg hold trap in Massachusetts is up for adoption.
The cat, named Wilson, has made a remarkable recovery after nearly losing his front paw.
Wilson was found badly injured in Westport in May. He has spent the past few weeks at the Animal Rescue League of Boston recovering. The league is hoping someone will give him a forever home.
Westport police are reminding residents that leg hold traps are against the law and are potentially lethal to pets.
