In the central valley wasteland of suburban Bakersfield, California, 35-year-old Jason Wilmert stands accused of decapitating and cooking cats. According to AP reports, Wilmert's neighbors in Oildale called the Sheriff after hearing "sounds of cats screaming" coming from the man's backyard. One told sheriff's deputies he even witnessed the gory feline decapitation, which Wilmert was apparently performing right there in the yard.

The alleged cat eater was arrested after a sheriff's deputy spotted a cat's head, which Wilmert had left outside. A search of the man's house turned up the rest of the cat's carcass "as if it were being prepped for cooking."

Wilmert will be arraigned today on charges of misdemeanor animal cruelty and "possession of a pet for food." Yuck.
