Rabbit’s foot not lucky after cat comes calling

| November 20, 2020 12:00 AM

A cat owner called the Columbia Falls Police Department because she wanted “advice regarding her cat.” She explained her kitty got into a neighbor’s rabbit hutch, causing the rabbit to become scared and break its leg. The rabbit owner wanted the cat owner to pay the bill for the broken leg but the cat owner said she didn’t think that was fair “as the cat didn’t mean for the rabbit to be hurt.”

A 9-year-old girl told her father a group of boys in a park pulled a knife on her and her friend. She said the boys tried to cut the ropes of the swings the girls were using. Her father went back to the park after the incident but apparently couldn’t locate the youths.

A neighbor suspected a boy nearby was dealing drugs. The neighbor didn’t provide information about the source of her suspicions, besides telling law enforcement the boy had “been keeping [her] up for the last week.”

There was a complaint about a “suspicious male” with a sign at an intersection. He was apparently begging for money and he was asked to move along.

A known violent offender on probation reportedly became intoxicated when he wasn’t supposed to be drinking and took firearms from a woman, even though he wasn’t supposed to have firearms. The guns were returned and his brother transported him to a hotel for the night.

Another intoxicated individual called the police, but seemed to think it was a mistake. She kept breaking off mid-sentence while telling the dispatcher she was trying to call the addiction hotline to discuss a mental-health issue.

A woman said she was on the toilet and losing blood but she didn’t want law enforcement to come into the bathroom or transport her in an ambulance. It appeared she had suffered a seizure.
