Rescuers in Minot thought they had saved a wild cat that fell into a heated fish pond and then froze to a rock, but it had to be put down.
Kim Fundingsland says he found the animal in his yard early Monday morning and initially thought it was a chunk of ice because the black cat was all white.
He called the animal control officer who used warm water to free it.
A police captain says a veterinarian examined the feral cat but it had been out in the cold too long and its injuries were too bad.
He says it shows how cold it was -- a cat that normally wouldn't have trouble jumping out of a pond gets stuck to a rock.
