Ozzy Osbourne Says He Shoots Cats That Wander Into His Garden

Ozzy Osbourne has joked that he shoots cats that wander into his garden and that using his rifle during lockdown has kept him 'sane'.

The 72-year-old Black Sabbath member, who has been criticised for his treatment of animals in the past, also claimed to shoot birds.

As reported by The Mirror, Ozzy told a radio station: "It gets me out of my head, man.

"When I am in my house, I worry I never am going to walk properly.

"When I first started this thing, I could not shoot. Now there's dead cats (and) birds every minute."

Ozzy, who revealed he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's last year, added that he started to shoot the animals to keep him 'sane' during lockdown.

The publication reports that when he was asked what happens to them when they start shooting, he replied: "They f*** off."

As with many things Ozzy does, it's advisable to take the latest reports with a pinch of salt.

In fact, the Osbournes have even worked with PETA to counter animal cruelty, with Ozzy starring in a campaign against the declawing of cats.

Ozzy's daughter Kelly has campaigned against killing seals for their coats, while his wife Sharon donated her furs to PETA after narrating en exposé on the cruelty of the fur industry and the chinchilla fur trade.

But it's still not enough to make him ever want to turn completely vegan - or at least to convert him to meat substitutes, after he referred to vegan bacon as 'alien foreskins'.

The former frontman recently spoke of his hatred of the influx of vegan meat alternatives, which he said inspired his new song 'Eat Me'.

"Have you tried that vegan stuff?" he asked NME interviewer Kevin Perry.

"It's like eating s***. It's got no f***ing taste.

"My daughter took me to a vegan Sunday breakfast. I looked at the menu and it's got bacon and scrambled eggs. I thought, you can't go wrong with that. The bacon comes and it's f**ing square with pink bits in it. It looked like alien foreskins.

"They were going: 'No, it's good - it's got no gluten'.

"It's got no f***ing food!"
