I'm digging all the disgusted, "If it were a cow...!" comments. There`s a few key facts you guys seem to be glossing over before hitting fingers to keyboard:
Livestock (cows, pigs, chickens, etc.) are not given to the care of people to be loved and cared for. They are to be raised only until they`re fit for packaging and consumption.
Cows, pigs, chickens, etc. can also be seen as pets. Guess what? If someone tries to marinate a pet cow by covering it in oil and various spices WHILE IT WAS STILL ALIVE, yeah, people would get as pissy.
And there we have the key factor: THE CAT WAS STILL ALIVE. Now, had the man killed the cat before attempting to marinate it, I doubt it would warrant a news story. but given the fact that the cat was STILL ALIVE AND HAVING TO ENDURE PAIN, that`s what everyone`s riled up about.
Oh, and can no one can bring up the cow/forklift thing until you can point out a better way to move a 1,000 lbs animal in the middle of
