Pay your electricity bill -- or Fluffy gets it
    #1980509 - 10/05/03 03:10 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

MOSCOW (Reuters) - For a Russian electricity company, pets are not just for Christmas -- they are for ransom.

Russia's First Channel television reported Dalenergo, an electricity company in Russia's Far Eastern city Vladivostok, is so frustrated by customers who owe around 300 million roubles (6 million pounds) that it has decided to confiscate their pets.


"Let the father answer his daughter's question as to why her favourite cat has been taken away," Dalenergo Director Nikolai Tkachyov told First Channel.


Dalenergo's parent, Unified Energy System (UES), disowned the pet-snatching plan.


"Dalenergo will not take away Vladivostok residents' four-footed friends," it said in a statement.
