We swear the headline is true. A man from California is in jail for allegedly cooking and eating cats. This sick man’s name is, Jason Louis Wilmert and he is facing charges for animal cruelty and for using a pet or domesticated animal as food. Both the charges are misdemeanors.
The police were tipped off by neighbors who called sheriff’s deputies when they heard cats wailing and screeching at the 36-year-old’s house in a Bakersfield suburb. Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt says he has never seen anything like this and that investigators found evidence that led them to believe “he had the intent to use a cat for food.”
Gross. If he wanted to eat some cat meat, why didn’t he just go pick up some McNuggets? There is probably some cat meat in those bad boys somewhere.
On a serious note, this story has sparked quite a debate. Some people are “defending” the guy, pointing out that we eat and kill animals everyday. And, then there are the people who are wanting to cut off his head and feed it to their cats.
What side are you on?
