A man in Murfreesboro, Tenn., is suing local police for "emotional pain and suffering" for taking more than 100 frozen dead pets from his home.
Police and animal control officers raided the home of William Davis, 75, in 2003 and found 114 dead cats and one dead German shepherd in three large freezers. Forty-six living cats and one dog were also in the house at the time, and they were confiscated, TheSmokingGun.com reported.
Davis filed a lawsuit last week seeking $1.5 million from police, claiming he was keeping one of the cats in an attempt to set a Guinness world record. The cat in question was unusually large at birth and Davis was preserving it in a freezer.
It took two separate raids to confiscate all the living and dead animals from the home. The police report posted on TheSmokinggun.com notes that Davis' house was so filled with animal feces it was difficult to breathe.
