GLENPOOL, Okla. (AP) - A 63-year-old Glenpool woman has been arrested for animal cruelty for drowning a cat.
Police say Charlotte Ann Clark was arrested Wednesday after a neighbor told officers she witnessed the incident.
Clark told police she had tried to get animal control officers to remove stray cats that were killing birds in her back yard but wasn't able to contact them.
She said she then used a trap to catch one cat and put it in a water-filled trash can because that was the "most humane way" she could think of to kill the animal.
Clark is in the Tulsa Jail on $4,000 bond according to the jail's Web site.
