Marinating Cat Case a No Show in Court

August 17, 2010 Updated Aug 17, 2010 at 11:34 AM EDT

BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Authorities have issued a warrant for the Cheektowaga man accused of soaking his cat in oil and spices in the trunk of his car, allegedly preparing it to be eaten.

51-year-old Gary Korkuc was scheduled to appear in Buffalo City Court Tuesday morning to answer the charges of Animal Cruelty, but failed to appear.

The judge has issued a bench warrant for Korkuc's arrest as a result.

The cat in question has since been adopted by a new owner after it was returned to the SPCA last week.
