California Man Cooks and Eats Cats !

Report By: Nina Rai


16 Feb, 2012

In a case that is sure to raise the hackles of animal rights activists’ in US, it has come to light that a man in California has been secretly cooking and devouring cats. This bizzare incident has astounded even the investigators looking into the case.

Meanwhile, Jason Louis Wilmert has been detained at the Kern County Jail and held under misdemeanor charges. The 36-year-old Californian is charged with alleged animal cruelty and using a pet or domesticated animal for food.

It all happened when one day neighbors heard the wailing and shrill screeching of a cat from Wilmert’s house in the Bakersfield Suburb of Oildale, whereupon they immediately called the Sheriff's deputies.

Stunned at the discovery, Ray Pruitt, the Sheriff's spokesman declared he has "never seen anything like this." According to Pruitt, investigators have found enough proof which leads them to believe that Wilmert had every intention to utilize a feline for food.

Reports suggest that a number of stray cats had been skinned and then grilled. One neighbor in the locality reportedly said: "The lady right here saw him holding a tail, skinning it. It is still alive ... I heard a cat cry really, really loud. And I came outside, because I'm an animal lover."

However, Pruitt refrained from commenting directly on the evidence found. It is not clear how many cats were being used in the alleged incident and if any of them were even saved. Meanwhile, the case has been transferred to the district attorney. The alleged feline eater is now scheduled for arraignment on Friday, Feb 17, 2012.

There needs to be comprehensive laws in place as also legislation drafted to make eating of cats or even dogs illegal, in view of so many calls of animal cruelty by animal rights activists and animal lovers.
