A pet owner who allegedly marinated his cat in oils and peppers, intending to eat it, has been arrested on charges of animal cruelty.
Police found four-year-old Navarro in a cage, his fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chilli peppers, in the boot of 51-year-old Gary Korkuc's car.
The animal was discovered when traffic officers pulled Korkuc over for failing to stop at a stop sign in Buffalo, New York.
"The cat appeared to be marinating in it," a police spokesman said.
Korkuc then reportedly told officers he was punishing his cat for being ill tempered - and told them he planned to cook the cat.
I will be ill tempered as well with him as a owner, I’m sure.
