C’mon, now… January 20, 2004

Posted by worldspectacle in Uncategorized.

Binoculars will now be used by Redlands police after a pet housecat, mistaken for a menacing mountain lion, is shot with an assault rifle.

Mountain Lion.

Kitty Cat.

The mistaken shooting of a domestic cat is prompting Redlands police to issue binoculars to officers involved in the hunt for a mountain lion that is believed to have been menacing residential neighborhoods for at least 2� years.

“We’ve issued binoculars to help them identify … the animal,” Redlands Police Chief Jim Bueerman said Friday, a day after an officer killed the wrong animal. “It was a big cat, but it was still a house cat.”

Suggestion: issue spectacles. We’d all feel safer.
