Are City Councilmen strangling kittens?

LOL Cats strangling each otherLast week the North County Times published a story about L.A.’s new pet sterilization law with the following passage:

“We will, sooner rather than later, become a no-kill city, and this is the greatest step in that direction,” Councilman Tony Cardenas, who co-authored the bill, said as he strangled a kitten at a City Hall news conference.

The AP story this originated from read that Cardenas “held” the kitten, who is apparently in perfectly good health. Minus its balls (thanks Tony!).

The editor who made the change called it an “unfortunate joke” that mistakenly made its way into print. He’s been fired. A co-editor was suspended.
