Astonished police have advised people not to throw dead cats at police cars after a bizarre incident in Northern Ireland.
Londonderry Police recounted how the animal carcass was hurled at them as they drove along the street late on Saturday night.
‘If you want to avoid police attention do not throw a dead cat at a passing police car,’ the hilarious post on the Foyle station’s Facebook began.
‘What is wrong with some people that I just had to write that?’
One of the officers posed for a photo next to the police car while holding four of the half-dozen beer bottles they confiscated, writing ‘cheers for the Coors’
The clearly exasperated officer shared his dismay at the young men in the car seeming ‘shocked and surprised’ when police immediately stopped.
‘One fella ran off and when we caught him he had six bottles of Coors hidden in all his pockets,’ they continued, sarcastically calling him a ‘criminal mastermind’.
‘We see some strange and disturbing things as police but I never expected to find myself having a dead cat thrown at me.’

Police later clarified that the cat throwers didn’t kill the unfortunate feline themselves as it was already hit by a car earlier.
‘Probably someone’s pet and they throw it around without a thought of anyone else,’ they wrote.
Police said they did not discover which of the actually group threw the cat and it was not clear if anyone was issued with an infringement.
