When confronted by the police, many people try to fight back. If they have a gun, they’ll shoot back. If they have a knife or a club, they may try to hit the police officer.

In Moscow, Gennady Shcherbakov, 59, allegedly used a cat as a weapon by thrusting it in the face of sergeant VA Tkachev, scratching his face. The cat has since passed away, although as any cat owner knows, a cat can be a deadly weapon, especially if you don’t feed it on time.
