76-Year-Old Texas Man Jailed For Feeding Homeless Cats

An elderly Texas man was jailed for eight days for having the audacity to feed stray cats.

David Parton, 76, was arrested in the town of Gainesville for breaking an ordinance against feeding strays and refusing to pay $900 in fines, according to MyFoxNY.

“My responsibility was simply to do what God said,’keep feeding them’,” Parton said.

Legal assistance was offered by the advocacy group Alley Cat Allies.

Editors Note: I am making a mental note to never spend any money in Gainesville Texas. I feel the lawmakers that made that law should be jailed for cruelty to animals and the elderly.
