Cat was quickly put down

(It's so simple, keep your pets indoors or contained on your property!)

Pet appeared sick, like it needed to be euthanized, officials claim

Promontory resident Wyndy Carnell said she knew something was wrong when she returned home June 9 and her housecat, Romeo, was missing.

A neighbor took the roughly 14-year-old cat to Summit County Animal Control when it strayed from its home on West View Trail. The cat was euthanized within three hours of its delivery that afternoon to the animal shelter in Wanship.

"Park City is such an animal town," Carnell said in a telephone interview.

But the woman who contacted Animal Control said Romeo looked "very, very sick," Summit County Sheriff's Office Capt. Dean Carr said.
