In a case that has shocked even harden British investigators, a Portsmouth man is in jail for allegedly cooking and eating neighborhood cats.
Harold Worth, age 69, is being held in the Portsmouth Jail on charges of alleging animal cruelty and using a pet or domesticated animal for food. Both charges are pending.
Neighbors called constables when they heard cats wailing and screeching at the 69-year-old’s house in the seamy east side of Portsmouth. Several neighbors admit they saw him chasing cats around the neighborhood with a net, but thought a pet of his escaped from a cage.
“We all thought he might be Chinese or something when we heard about the ruckus over there,” said Ethel Boggs, who herself lost several cats over the past year, including Mr. Tumbles, her 7 year old Persian who had a knack of picking football team winners in advance.
Head Constable Merriweather Pittcurn says he has “never seen anything like this.”
Pittcurn 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 town’s legal staff and lead attorney.
Worth’s only comment was he liked to eat pussy. Several of the constables said they agreed as well, but liked theirs uncooked.
PETA has announced a demonstration in front of the Portsmouth jail scheduled for Tuesday.
