TRAVERSE CITY, MI (AP) -

A northern Michigan man who authorities say wrapped a cat in duct tape has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports 54-year-old Mykhaylo Narolskyy learned his punishment Tuesday after earlier pleading guilty to a misdemeanor animal cruelty charge.

A Grand Traverse County animal control officer in November responded to a neighbor's call reporting the cat covered in duct tape near Narolskyy's home in Traverse City. Someone in the home told authorities the tape was used to stop the cat from itching.

A veterinarian who treated the animal told authorities the use of tape was negligent because such strong tape would obviously harm the animal.
