Police find a live cat in car ready to be cooked
POLICE in the US say a traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges after they found a live cat "marinating" in oil and peppers in the trunk of a car.
Buffalo police say officers heard the cat meowing when they stopped 51-year-old Gary Korkuc to ticket him for running a stop sign last Sunday.
They say they checked the trunk and found four-year-old Navarro in a cage, his fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chili peppers. Navarro was later cleaned and put up for adoption by animal advocates.
