Apparently, there was no need to even question the cat after this yellow lab, in the view of his owner, all but confessed to the crime — getting into the cat treat bag.
For all those who say dogs don’t feel guilt, or something closely akin to it, explain this reaction.
Based on it, Denver, the yellow lab who is the second to be interrogated, is sent to the pen — though I would point out the evidence was entirely circumstantial, there was no DNA testing, he was never read his rights and he received no trial before a jury of his peers.
We hope his sentence was a short one.
And we still think it’s possible the cat did it.

The sun will come out tomorrow — at least it did for Macy.
Macy was a scruffy little mutt, picked up as a stray and taken to Pontotoc County Animal Welfare Society in Ada, Oklahoma — a facility that generally holds dogs for three days before “deciding their future.”
(Meaning, especially in times of shelter overcrowding, whether they are going to have one.)
Macy, though unadopted and unclaimed, managed to stay there for several months, but as time passed her chances were growing dimmer.
She caught a break when she was chosen for a prison dog program called New Leash on Life at the CCA-Davis Correctional Facility in Holdenville, Okla. But it turned out to be a temporary reprieve.
“Unfortunately, despite being a model student, Macy was the only dog at the end of the program scheduled to return to a kill shelter instead of an adoptive home or no-kill rescue,” according to RockySpot Rescue in Newcastle.
Macy’s future was looking pretty bleak again when, after her time in the prison program, RockySpot rescue took her in. RockySpot put a photo of Macy on its website, in hopes of finding her a home.
Another three months had passed when her picture was spotted by Bill Berloni, who trains animals for Broadway shows.
Berloni flew in from New York to look at her, and he liked what he saw.
Macy will be performing on Broadway, playing the role of Sandy in the musical “Annie.”
The moral of the story? Every time an orphaned dog is “euthanized,” a potential happy ending bites the dust.
