It's not only humans who are at risk of getting arrested for breaking the law - non-human animals can, and have, been arrested too. For example, in 2013 in the European nation of Maldova, a cat was arrested in a prison facility. Guards noticed the cat sneaking through holes in the walls of the prison and eventually examined the cat. They found small bags of cannabis on the cat, and took it to a holding cell to prevent it from being used to smuggle drugs within the prison in the future.
