Korkuc and the cat he tried to marinade and eat.

A cat was recently rescued from the trunk of an upstate man's car, which in this weather is bad enough as it is, but this cat was found marinating. It seems Gary Korkuc of Cheektowaga was planning to eat his cat, named Navarro, and left him soaking in spices in the trunk—the mixture he used consisted of crushed red peppers, chili pepper, salt and oil.

Korkuc allegedly thought the cat was ill-tempered, according to Buffalo News, and one neighbor who spotted the cat in his car says Korkuc told him he was bringing him to the SPCA because he "just can't take care of cats."

Navarro was rescued when officers pulled Korkuc over during a traffic stop on Sunday night, and heard the cat crying from the trunk. The 51-year-old was arrested on one count of animal cruelty; he told officers the cat was "possessive, greedy and wasteful." The SPCA’s director of public relations commented, saying, “It’s disgusting. It surprises me every day what people are capable of when it comes to violence, whether it is animals or people. I’ve never heard of anything like this before.” The 4-year-old cat has since been adopted—hopefully to some vegetarians—and renamed Oliver.
