A traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges after police found a live cat "marinating" in oil and peppers in the trunk of a car.

Officers in Buffalo, New York, said they heard the cat when they stopped 51-year-old Gary Korkuc to give him a ticket for running a stop sign.

They found four-year-old Navarro - now safe and up for adoption - in a cage, his fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chilli peppers, according to a newspaper.

Police said Korkuc told them he did it because Navarro was ill-tempered and that he was going to cook the cat. He has been charged with cruelty and released.

Korkuc also told officers a number of things that do not make sense, including that his neutered male cat was pregnant.
