Russian Mafia cat assassins

The Russian police's only sniffer cat has been run over and killed by a car, in what is believed to be a contract killing. Rusik the cat was used to detect smuggled sturgeon (an endangered species of fish prized as a source of caviar) in the Stavropol region bordering the Caspian Sea. The offending vehicle is one in which the cat found a stash of illegal sturgeon some years earlier.

Animals works with men from early times, they're loyal and do their work just right because they can, Rusik was an special cat with a huge talent to discover hidden sturgeon fish, his early death was a sad new but was not in vain becasue there is a precedent to future works with these skilfull animals, i give a tribute to this heroic cat who fell on the line of duty.
