LAFAYETTE, Colo. (AP) - Police in Lafayette, Colo., have ticketed a man who is accused of tying his cat to a rock after the feline refused to go jogging.

Sgt. Fred Palmer says 19-year-old Seth Franco brought his cat on a leash to the path around Waneka Lake Park on Wednesday, but the
cat was unable to keep up.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, witnesses told police that Franco secured the cat's leash to a rock while he finished his run. A passer-by called police.

Franco was ticketed on suspicion of "domestic animal cruel treatment," a municipal offense.

Palmer says an ordinance in the city, about 20 miles north of Denver, "prohibits that kind of tethering."

The cat wasn't injured, so it was released to its owner.

Franco could not immediately be reached for comment.
