Jerk Puts Noose Around Cat’s Neck, Gives it Heroin, Veterinarian Saves Cat With Reversal Drug
A Pennsylvania veterinarian saved a cat’s life by using a reversal drug after the animal’s owner gave it heroin. Police arrested West Chester resident James Myers on Tuesday.
Myers faces charges which include animal cruelty and drug possession, according to the News & Record.
An officer spotted Myers’ car parked in the middle of a street Sunday with a door open, according to police in West Whiteland Township.
The officer said that under the door he saw an injured black kitten with a rope around its neck and several teeth knocked out.
Police then discovered bundles of heroin and dozens of needles in the car.
The veterinarian saved the kitty by reviving it with Narcan, an antidote for opiate-based drug overdoses.
