Nebraska Man Stuffs Cat Inside Bong

Postby Marinepits » March 2nd, 2009, 10:12 pm,2933,503645,00.html



OMAHA, Neb. — A man who tried to mellow out his cat by stuffing her into a homemade bong is facing criminal charges—and catcalls from animal lovers. Authorities cited a 20-year-old man on suspicion of animal cruelty Sunday after catching him smoking marijuana from a contraption that had a cat stuffed inside its 12-inch by 6-inch base.

The man told Lancaster County sheriff's deputies the 6-month-old female named Shadow had been hyper and that he was trying to calm her down.

The cat was taken to the Capital Humane Society, where she appeared to be in good condition Monday, executive director Bob Downey said.

"What the human mind doesn't invent, huh?" Downey said.

Deputies discovered the cat trapped in the device after responding to a domestic disturbance call at a residence the suspect shares with his grandfather, Sgt. Andy Stebbing said.

Deputies resolved the dispute and left the house, but they returned minutes later after discovering there was an arrest warrant on the suspect for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Upon re-entering the house, Stebbing said, deputies saw the suspect smoking marijuana through a piece of garden hose attached to the duct-taped, plastic glass box, in which the cat had been stuffed.

"This cat was just dazed," Stebbing said. "She was on the front seat of the cop car, wrapped in a blanket, and never moved all the way to the humane society."

The suspect was cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty and taken to the Lancaster County Jail on the arrest warrant. He was released after paying a $400 fine.

Now he faces new charges for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia stemming from Sunday.

Stebbing said the animal cruelty charge could be raised to a felony if the cat dies or is found to have suffered injury.

Downey said tests would be done to determine whether the cat suffered lung damage.

"To the eye, the cat looks OK," he said. "It cowers in the back of its cage like it's a little bit afraid but, obviously, given the way it's been treated, that's not surprising to me at all."

I'd like to whack him upside the head with a bong and then pour the water on him.

Reminds me that at work tonight, there was a cat that needed to get an x-ray done, and I went to get him in the room.

The exam room is quite large and smelled like someone was growing weed in it. The owner looked pretty stoned and the cat was a PLEASURE to x-ray even though his intestines were all over the place (he had a huge unbilical hernia and had a pouch the size of a large grapefruit full of innards, and almost none left in the actual abdomen)... He was so stoned... People don't realize they drug their animals, too.

Then there was a cat for chest x-rays, who had breathing difficulties. He smelled like an ashtray. Guess who's not helping.
