Man charged with 'marinating' cat

A traffic stop led to animal cruelty charges after police found a live cat “marinating” in oil and chili peppers in the trunk of a car.

Buffalo police say officers heard the cat meowing when they stopped 51-year-old Gary Korkuc of Cheektowaga to ticket him for running a stop sign Sunday night.

They checked the trunk and found the black-and-white cat in a cage, its fur covered with oil, crushed red peppers and chili pepper.

Police say Korkuc told them he did it because the cat was ill-tempered. Korkuc was charged with cruelty and released. Four-year-old Navarro was cleaned up at the SPCA in Tonawanda to be adopted.

Korkuc's phone number isn't listed.
