Wow. This is a great argument for enforcing small laws to prevent people from breaking bigger ones. Case in point – if you don’t stop people for minor traffic violations they’ll soon be eating their pets. Don’t believe me?

Buffalo News reports:

Buffalo police rescued a cat from a Cheektowaga man who apparently was planning to make a meal out of his pet because he thought it was ill-tempered, authorities said Monday.

When Ferry-Fillmore District officers pulled over a car driven by Gary L. Korkuc on Sunday night during a traffic stop, they said they heard a cat crying from inside the trunk and investigated.

What they found has left animal lovers at the SPCA Serving Erie County in shock.

The cat, according to police, was in a cage “marinating” in a mixture of crushed red peppers, chili pepper, salt and oil.

This isn’t a case where the dude kicked the pet because he had a bad day. This isn’t a case where someone lost control for a moment. The dude was MARINATING his cat.

I wonder who would win in a crazy contest, the cat marinater or the stewardess dude who freaked out and jumped out of the plane after grabbing some beers. My money’s on the cat marinater because you don’t just add chili pepper unless you’ve tasted it before and decided “you know this could use some chili peppers.” Scary thought.
