Can You Legally Eat Your Own Cat?

Apparently in some states there are no laws barring you from eating your own pets, but this guy lives in one of those that does have a law on the book and he was arrested after a traffic stop lead to the discovery of his plan. In the trunk the officers found a cat marinating in a mixture of crushed red peppers, chili peppers, salt and oil.

I’m a huge fan of animals, mainly dogs [not so much cats], but either way this article had me in tears when I was reading it. Seriously, the cat was mean to the guy so he decided he was going to eat him… I think this guy is ALF in disguise…

(NewsCore) – A Buffalo man allegedly marinated his live cat in a mixture of crushed red peppers and chili — but was arrested before he could eat the pet, the Buffalo News reported Tuesday.

Police rescued the cat after finding it in the Cheektowaga man’s car trunk when he was pulled over for allegedly passing a stop sign on Sunday night.

Ferry-Fillmore District officers said they heard the cat crying from inside the trunk and found it in a cage “marinating” in a mixture of crushed red peppers, chili pepper, salt and oil.

Gary L. Korkuc, 51, told police his black and white cat named Navarro had been “mean” to him and he was planning to make a meal out of the animal because it was ill-tempered.

He was arrested on one count of cruelty to animals and was also charged with passing a stop sign and failure to signal.

Navarro, a four-year-old male, was taken to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, where he is being put up for adoption.
