Avoiding A Catastrophe

The Newport, Oregon police risked their lives last week while answering a call for an armed and dangerous cat.

On Tuesday, the Newport Police Facebook page, which is possibly the best local police Facebook page in America, posted a picture of a cat in a tree. But this was no regular cat-in-a-tree. The cat looked distressingly like it was holding an assault rifle.

“The feline was contacted by our canine,” the post continues, “and was determined to be in possession of a non-lethal branch.” Still, the Newport Police weren’t going to let the cat off scot-free.

“The cat was given a verbal warning,” Newport Police said on Facebook, “for posing with what could be mistaken as an assault rifle while wearing poor camouflage attire.” (H/T – Smite)

Thank god the police arrived in time, or the felonious feline would have dealt out a Charles Whitman Sampler.
