Yes, you read the headline right.
Everyone’s got guns… and apparently that includes cats.
The Newport Oregon Police posted a photo of a cat that was found in a tree with what appeared to be an assault rifle in its paws. Look closely… it really DOES look like the cat was holding a little miniature gun.
Fortunately, it turns out the gun was actually just a branch that LOOKED like an assault rifle, so it was determined the cat wasn’t a threat at all.
“The cat was given a verbal warning, for posing with what could be mistaken as an assault rifle while wearing poor camouflage attire” Newport Police said on Facebook of the post they found floating around the web from last July from a source in the UK.
