Cat Mafia Rumors In Berlin

This is actually a pretty sick story. Basically, there are rumors of people snatching up cats in Berlin to sell to fur traders or scientists.

(Spielgel Online) "You see a lot of women walking around town wearing coats with beautiful fur collars. In many cases it's synthetic fur but it's also often cat fur. Many people don't realize what they're wearing around their necks. For all they know it could be their own missing cat," said G├Ąding.

He said around 2,500 of Berlin's 300,000 cats vanish every year and that around 500 are "unexplained disappearances."
