An Omaha, Nebraska gentleman has been cited on suspicion of animal cruelty and other charges after police discovered he had put a cat inside this homemade bong. According to the humane society, the cat appears to be OK but will be tested for lung damage. From the San Diego Union Tribune:

Upon re-entering the house, Stebbing said, deputies saw the suspect smoking marijuana through a piece of garden hose attached to the duct-taped, plastic glass box, in which the cat had been stuffed.
