ABC15 News-Hounds Confront 81-Year-Old Woman About Eating Cats (Video)

Sometimes it's hard to ignore how adorable local TV reports are -- like the endless chupacabra chases from KPHO.

This time around, it's ABC 15, which sent its reporters northwest to Wittmann to find out if serial cat-hoarder Lucienne Touboul -- an 81-year-old woman -- was really eating her cats.

For the third cat-bust at Touboul's house in recent years, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office found more than 60 cats at her place, just two years after deputies found more than 100 cats there -- more than half of them dead.

As usual, most of the cats that weren't found dead in the freezer will have to be euthanized due to diseases.

This time around, though, MCSO said the woman admitted to eating some of the cats in the form of "cat stew."

Now that's something you just have to get to the bottom of.

Touboul told ABC15 the Sheriff's Office is lyin', and here's the adorable interview:
