Buffalo, New York (SafeCITY) - Gary Korkuc, a 51-year-old New York man was jailed Sunday after police discovered he allegedly marinated a cat he was preparing to eat.

According to Buffalo Police and SPCA officials, an officer pulled Korkuc over after he allegedly ran a stop sign.

The officer was processing the traffic stop when he reportedly heard a cat's meow from the rear of the vehicle.

When the officer decided to take a closer look inside Korkuc's trunk, he was greeted with the bizarre sight of a cat marinating in oil, crushed red pepper, chili powder and salt.

"From what we understand from Buffalo Police, the person who owned this kitty was marinating him in order to cook him," said SPCA spokesperson, Gina Browning.

Korkuc, has since denied any plans of eating the cat, calling the allegation a mere "assumption."

He also apparently denies that the cat was marinating, but instead was pregnant and recently miscarried. (we thought this cat was a he, according to SPCA).

"That was it's blood and feces," said Korkuc. "I was taking it back over to the SPCA when they stopped me."

SPCA officials reconfirmed Tuesday that the cat is indeed a male that had been neutered.

Korkuc, who reportedly adopted the cat from SPCA in May, apparently decided to get rid of the cat because it had created a mess in his apartment, according to a neighbor.

Korbuc was booked into jail on one count of aggravated cruelty to animals.
