Kitten Caught Swindling Tourists in Istanbul
A kitten offering tours to wayward travelers has been apprehended in Istanbul, Turkey. Authorities there say he is not a licensed tour guide, though his scheme generated more than $200,000.
“He seems really cute and trustworthy,” says Fahri Demir, Istanbul’s tourism minister. “But he’ll just take your money and drop you off in a ‘historic alleyway,’ then disappear. It’s bad for our city.”
