    Cop Saves Cat!

    Traffic stop saves cat from owner’s plate
    By Lou Michel



    Buffalo police rescued a cat from a Cheektowaga man who apparently was planning to make a meal out of his pet because he thought it was ill-tempered, authorities said Monday.

    When Ferry-Fillmore District officers pulled over a car driven by Gary L. Korkuc on Sunday night during a traffic stop, they said they heard a cat crying from inside the trunk and investigated.

    What they found has left animal lovers at the SPCA Serving Erie County in shock.

    The cat, according to police, was in a cage “marinating” in a mixture of crushed red peppers, chili pepper, salt and oil.

    “It’s disgusting. It surprises me every day what people are capable of when it comes to violence, whether it is animals or people,” said Gina M. Browning, the SPCA’s director of public relations. “I’ve never heard of anything like this before.”

    Korkuc, 51, was arrested on one count of cruelty to animals by Officers Jerry Guilian and John Poisson, shortly after he was stopped on the 1100 block of Broadway at about 7:45 p. m. for allegedly passing a stop sign.

    Police took the 4-year-old cat to the SPCA on Ensminger Road in the Town of Tonawanda, where Korkuc had adopted it May 11. He told police the cat had been “mean” to him, authorities said.

    In condemning the treatment of the cat, whose name is Navarro, Browning read from an SPCA memo put together in part from information provided by the officers and shelter staff:

    “Do not under any circumstances adopt to this man ever again. He claims he did not want the cat because it was ‘possessive, greedy and wasteful.’ That the cat got pregnant after ‘spaying,’ even though it was a neutered male. This man is a danger to animals. . . . was soaking cat in marinade to ‘cook.’ ”

    Workers at the SPCA gave Navarro two baths Sunday night to clean the spices off and were letting him calm down before bathing him again, Browning said late Monday, adding that the cat is adjusting well.

    “We can learn lessons in resiliency. He is purring away and getting ready for his next checkup. He’s looking around like, ‘What am I doing here?’ He might be put [back] up for adoption,” Browning said.

    Praising Guilian and Poisson, she added, “Thank God that police heard him. Thank God those cops took the initiative. By all appearances that cat may have wound up dead.”

    Korkuc was also charged with passing a stop sign and failure to signal. After his arrest, he was later released on an appearance ticket.

    Navarro has black and white markings, weighs 12 pounds and is described as having a good disposition. Adoption hours today at the SPCA, 205 Ensminger, are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    CAT EATS PLANT!



    CAT EATS LILY, NEARLY DIES

    BOSTON -- A Jamaica Plain cat was rushed to the emergency critical care unit of Angell Animal Medical Center in grave condition Monday after it ate Easter lily leaves.

    The cat, named D.J., ate the leaves of the plant after the cat's owner, Shruti Sehra, brought it into her home as a centerpiece for her dining table. The plant is so poisonous that even small amounts can cause kidney failure and death in cats.

    After learning that D.J. ate the leaves, Sehra went online to determine whether the plant could be harmful if ingested. When she discovered just how poisonous lilies are to cats, she immediately rushed D.J. to Angell. Angell veterinarians credit Sehra's quick thinking with saving the life of her pet.

    The veterinary team performed an endoscopy -- a procedure that involves inserting a camera into an animal’s stomach -- to confirm that she had indeed eaten part of the lily. The team, led by Dr. Megan Davis, then scoped out all of the plant material from D.J.’s stomach.

    Cop saves bobcat!

    Police officer saves rather than shoots injured bobcat in Minnesota

    Julie Hanan
    Exotic Pets Examiner

    On a bitterly cold night, with temperatures plummeting below 0, a family watched in shock as an injured bobcat dragged its body through the snow up to their door. How did he know this might be his only chance for survival, the one place that might help him?

    He propped his head on their doorstep, peering through their window, anxious for some sort of help. Luckily for him, the homeowners, Mark and Brenda Winberg, wasted no time and rushed into action.

    No officers from Minnesota’s Dept. of Natural Resources were available, so Hermantown Police Officer Kristi Hansen received the radio page to “put the animal down and bring the body to the DNR facility.”

    The family insisted, “Absolutely not!” They said that Officer Hansen “didn’t feel comfortable shooting it so near our house either. My kids fell in love with this little guy as he watched us through the door,” Brenda Winberg explained.

    Instead, the Officer contacted dispatchers and asked for a list of rescue organizations who might be able to help. Luckily for this bobcat, she reached Wildwoods Rehabilitation, a non-profit organization in Duluth, and they hurried to the scene.

    Grabbing catch poles, leather gloves, thick wool blankets, and a dog kennel, Peggy and Farzad Farr of Wildwoods Rehabilitation headed to the Winberg's home. They notified their veterinarian to meet them there, in case the cat had to be sedated.

    Due to his injuries, the bobcat wasn’t able to run. Farzad was able to gently corral him into a large kennel. Even so, Peggy said “this rescue was a little scary. Thank goodness for catch poles!”

    The next morning, he was taken to bobcat expert Dr. Deb Eskedahl of Wild and Free in Garrison, MN. She found that this 1 ½ year old male bobcat had suffered a concussion, was a bit underweight, and covered in fleas. But, miraculously, there were no fractures.

    Hearing the news that the bobcat was expected to make a full recovery, the Winberg’s were thrilled. They thanked the rehabbers and veterinarians “for taking such good care of our little visitor!!! I'm happy we pushed, she (Officer Hansen) listened, and we found another option.” Many times, there are alternatives like this for wounded wildlife.

    Once the family's photos from that night were posted on Wildwoods Rehabilitation’s Facebook page, kudos began pouring in for the heroic efforts of Officer Hansen.

    Though the officer felt she just did her job, Peggy Farr said that this bobcat owes his life to her. “You're the one who took the time to look for alternate solutions to ‘just shoot it.’ You are a shining example of a compassionate officer who goes the extra mile to find the best solution - rather than the easiest. We are so lucky to have people like you in the police force!!!”

    Rescue work brings more than its share of heartbreak. Happy endings like this are treasures for all involved. “I look forward to this bobcat living wild again,” shared Tammy Thies, director of Minnesota’s Wildcat Sanctuary, as she thanked all involved when she heard about this rescue.

    That is something everyone seems to agree with.

    If you’d like to help donate to the bobcat’s care or help with Wildwoods Rehabilitation’s goal of opening a rehab/education center, please go to www.wildwoodsrehab.org.

    Cop SAVES Jesus......

    Heroic Officer saves local man.

    05/02/12
    Podunc, USA

    A commuter was saved today through the courageous actions of a local law enforcement official.
    What should have been a routine license check turned out to be a life saving action on the part of Sgt. Slaughter.
    Witnesses say that as Jesus O'Rourk approached the license check Sgt. Slaughter noticed something out of the ordinary. Something largely undetectable to the untrained eye. Something that could have cost Mr. O'rourk his life.



    What Sgt. Slaughter noticed was that Mr. O'Rourk's passenger side headlight had burned out and was non-operable.
    "Had it not been for the officers quick action in writing me a ticket I don't know if I'd be here to tell the tale." commented Mr. O'Rourk. "He was quick with his pen and pad and got all that information down before anything life-threatening happened. He was real courteous and all. Then he let me be on my way. I'm not sure how I'm gonna pay the ticket being I've been unemployed for some time now." He added, " I'm sure glad he wrote it though. Without that ticket I might have not made it home safely."
