A man has been charged with animal cruelty after being caught marinating his live cat.
Cruel Gary L. Korkuc was pulled over by police for allegedly passing a stop sign in Buffalo, USA.
When officers searched his car they found pet moggy ‘Navarro’ in the boot, marinating in a mixture of crushed red peppers, chilli pepper, salt and oil.
The 51-year-old driver was arrested before telling police the “ill-tempered” cat had been mean to him and he was planning to make a meal out of him. He also described the four-year-old as “possessive, greedy and wasteful.”
Police charged Korkuc with animal cruelty and released.
Gina M. Browning, director of public relations, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said: “’It’s disgusting. It surprises me every day what people are capable of when it comes to violence, whether it is animals or people.”
Navarro was taken in by the SPCA and quickly re-homed with his new owner renaming him Oliver.
