A case of feline fitness gone wrong: Colorado police have ticketed a man who is accused of tying his cat to a rock after it refused to go jogging. Sgt. Fred Palmer says 19-year-old Seth Franco brought his cat on a leash to a path at a Lafayette park on Wednesday, but the cat was unable to keep up. Rather than call it quits and head home, a witness told police that Franco secured the cat's leash to a rock while he finished his run—where birds reportedly began to attack it.
Police were called, and a Lafayette ordinance "prohibits that kind of tethering," so Franco was ticketed on suspicion of "domestic animal cruel treatment." The cat wasn't injured, so it was released to him.
