SURGEONS were today removing a pellet from an 18-month-old girl’s leg after she was shot in a Merseyside park.
The toddler was with her mother and pet dog in a field near their St Helens home when she was hit at 11am yesterday.
The little girl was running around the field, known as the Duckeries, off Fleet Lane, Derbyshire Hill, when she toddled after the dog in some nearby bushes.
The little girl suddenly burst into tears and her mother noticed her leg was injured.
It was only when they got to hospital they were told the injury was consistent with a shot from a pellet gun or air rifle. At that point, they called the police.
Society is getting worse and when you see stories like this it makes you even more angry. People should be able to go on the park and not have to worry about what some degenerate youths may do, these little scum bags need to be put in boot camps and taught a lesson.
But the public will keep on voting for the same old crap that are letting this happen and then when it happens to them they complain. Well time for people to wake up and do something about it NOW before something happens to them.
Anyone with information should call police on 0151 777 1561 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
