    KINGMAN, Ariz. - A man angry at firefighters who refused to rescue a cat from a tree was arrested after he started shooting at the fire crew, officials said.

    Jeffrey Cullen, 58, was charged with four felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Mohave County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Trish Carter said.

    A three-person fire crew went to Cullen’s home Thursday when he reported a tree fire, but found no blaze, Hualapai Valley Fire Department spokeswoman Sandy Edwards said.

    Well, if it were me I would have rescued the cat and then put the owner up in the tree.

    If cats died in trees why don't we see cat skeletons in all the trees?
