Man in US arrested for allegedly cooking and eating cats

BAKERSFIELD, California (AP) - In a case that has shocked even investigators, a California man is in jail for allegedly cooking and eating cats. Jason Louis Wilmert is being held in the Kern County Jail on charges alleging animal cruelty and using a pet or domesticated animal for food. Both charges are misdemeanors. Neighbours called sheriff's deputies when they heard cats wailing and screeching at the 36-year-old's house. Sheriff's spokesman Ray Pruitt says he has 'never seen anything like this.' Mr Pruitt says investigators found evidence that led them to believe 'he had the intent to use a cat for food,' but he couldn't comment directly on the evidence. The case has been sent to the district attorney.
