Cat in Sting of Fake Vet

How do you catch someone who is fraudulently pretending to be a veterinarian? Police in Brooklyn set up a sting with a shelter kitten. Told that the cat needed to be neutered, he took the cat and $135. The "vet" pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation and mental health treatment. The cat got a tiny badge for his collar and was honored at a couple of events. Fake Veterinarian in New York City 'Undercover Kitten' Sting Sentenced to Probation, AP (, May 24, 2007.
