Cat hanged, burned in fire pit

Police are looking to interview an Austin man who allegedly hung a cat by a string and burned the animal in a backyard fire pit.

An Austin police community service officer took a report about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday from someone about a 34-year-old man who killed one of two house cats Monday while drunk at a home, Police Chief Paul Philipp said.

The officer spoke with three people at 1107 Fourth Ave. N.W., who weren't home at the time of the incident but said the man told them he killed the cat, Philipp said. They then evicted the man from the home.
