After some namby-pamby liberal egghead judge threw stop-and-frisk in the judicial toilet and flushed it without a second thought, New Yorkers knew crime would go up. Mayoral hopeful Joe Lhota even helpfully suggested getting rid of it led to the recent motorcycle gang beating on the West Side Highway. But little did we know that the criminal mindset would filter down to our animal friends, as Park Slope, under seige from a feral bully cat, is now finding out.
DNA Info shares the news of a cat skulking around Park Slope, hissing at humans, attacking fellow felines and not respecting authority, be it in the form of a shouting human or a spraying hose. Recently, the mystery cat attacked two cats belonging to a Park Slope resident, so she to put up posters asking for someone to step up and claim their aggressive tabby so that she could at least be compensated for vet costs.
Whether this is a cat who doesn’t fear the (cat) police because of a growing anti-cop atmosphere or just a cat acting like a cat is still up for debate, but in the meantime, we suggest travelers going to Park Slope walk around with some tuna to throw as a distraction if they run into this beast.
