Audio: Man dials 999 demanding police arrest his girlfriend’s cat for eating his bacon

Listen to the moment a man dialled 999 demanding that police arrest his girlfriend’s cat – for eating his bacon.

In the unbelievable call which was made to West Yorkshire Police, the man said he wanted to press charges against both his girlfriend and her cat.

He accuses his girlfriend of having allowed her cat to eat the bacon.

Asked whether he would like to press charges against the cat or his girlfriend, the caller says, "Both of them," before being told that the police don't arrest cats.

The clip is just one example of the thousands of time-wasting calls made to West Yorkshire Police every year.

The force wants people to think before they dial 999 as any time wasted could lead to genuine emergencies not being dealt with effectively - putting people’s lives put at risk.
