GREENFIELD, Wis., June 24 (UPI) -- A couple in Wisconsin called upon local police after their cat's wild behavior left them feeling like hostages in their own home.

Police responded to the home in Greenfield when a woman called to report that her pet cat had attacked her husband and sought help in having the animal removed.


"This is gonna sound like a strange question but we have a cat and it's going crazy and it attacked my husband and we're kind of hostage in our house and we're just wondering who we should call to do something, get rid of the cat or help us," the woman said in the 911 call shared by WWDJT.

Neither the woman nor her husband were seriously injured by the cat, which was ultimately captured and placed in custody of the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission.
