A Washington cat accused of trespassing has won a 125-thousand dollar settlement.
Newsweek is reporting that the tabby cat owner Anna Danieli received the settlement after her cat Miska was accused of trespassing in a Bellevue neighborhood. Her attorney says Danieli’s family cat was taken away by animal control and she received $30-thousand in fines.
An investigation into the citations found that one of the complainants had a connection to animal control. Danieli’s attorney says there was a conflict of interest because the head of animal control was one of the neighbors who filed complaints, and the family didn’t know it.
