Police in United States’ Newport City were shocked when they were asked to deal with an “armed cat” on the loose in the city.
The cat was armed with a rifle and could have shot anyone so policemen in the Newport Oregon Police Department had a lot to worry but they realised that the picture they had been sent of the “gangster kitty” was simply an optical illusion.
So they responded in style…
The post read: “Reports of an armed cat this morning were unfounded. The feline was contacted by our canine and was determined to be in possession of a non-lethal branch.
“The cat was given a verbal warning for posing with what could be mistaken as an assault rifle while wearing poor camouflage attire.”
