Winged Cat “From Hell” Put to Death in Central Russia

Your rating: None

A winged cat has been killed by villagers near the Central Russian city of Kursk. The locals drowned the deformed puss after believing it was a messenger of Satan, the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper reports.

*Hoax Alert*

I found another article that discussed winged cats as a physical possibility, most likely from a skin abnormality:

But notice the "manchester 1960's" pic from that site and the blurred but identical one for the "news story". I don't think the drowning incident occurred.

Your rating: None

They don't claim the photo was a picture of the cat in question. Winged cats are a fairly rare occurrence but it's probable that the story is accurate. Unfortunate that anyone would drown a cat in this day and age, though.
