A threat to President Obama in the form of a burnt cat staked to a tree stump drew law enforcement officers from several city and federal agencies to a south Minneapolis park before dawn on Monday.
The cat in Longfellow Park was staked with a handheld American flag on a small stick, according to a federal law enforcement official. Standing next to the cat was an Obama/Biden 2012 lawn sign, the official said.
No arrests have been made.
Obama's official schedule Monday shows him leaving Chicago for Omaha and then on to Boone, Iowa, about 230 miles south of Minneapolis.
The park's main building is also an election polling place. Tuesday is a primary election day in Minneapolis and elsewhere in the state.
Luther Ranheim, who lives about 4 blocks from the park was walking his puppy and came upon the scene a little less than two hours after the cat's discovery. "I was like what the hell is that?" he said. "It made me sick to my stomach."
Park Board spokeswoman Dawn Sommers said the cat was found by one of the park's employees.
Agencies that responded to the threat included the Secret Service, the FBI, the federal Department of Homeland Security, officers from the Minneapolis Park Police force and Minneapolis Police Department.
The federal official said there are no surveillance cameras in south end of Longfellow Park, located just north of E. 35th Street and about a half-mile east of Hiawatha Avenue.

The Democrat cat obviously was so distressed that Ryan was chosen for VP that he self-immolated in protest.
“On the stump along with the cat, with the flag’s stick staked through its throat, were an iced tea can and a cat food tin, the federal official said. There was no note, the official added”
Sounds like a false flag by some SEIU goon to whip up sympathy for potentate Obama.
Wow. I wonder how long it will take to rectify that situation? They should put a MAJOR effort into this one. All levels of law enforcement from the feds on down.
Yeah, that Obama/Biden 2012 poster is definitely a felony and should be promptly incinerated!
Poor kitty! Had to be a liberal that did it. A conservative would never, ever to such a terrible thing.
Now on to the important task at hand. It’s time we place a ban on matches and lighters!
paranoia is one of the marks of dictator.
Some cruel Democrat did the poor cat in. People have become demonic
“On the stump along with the cat, with the flag’s stick staked through its throat, were an iced tea can and a cat food tin, the federal official said. There was no note, the official added.”
Cats typically do not leave notes.
Why is this a threat to Obama?
I was just gonna say, the first thought that came to mind was false flag.
“Cats typically do not leave notes.”
“Agencies that responded to the threat included the Secret Service, the FBI, the federal Department of Homeland Security, officers from the Minneapolis Park Police force and Minneapolis Police Department.”
Who did we leave out? Fish and Wildlife Service? A USDA poultry inspector?
It’s the world gone into a sinkhole.
When you’re a pompous azz with a Mt. Rushmore sized ego even a defaced campaign bumper sticker is a “threat”.
Iced Tea! Any “Skittles”?
Maybe obama is seeking a feline menu for a change, and he was interrupted while preparing dinner.
No, but there was a tape recorder beside the cat. When they pushed the play button a voice said, "Let's play a game!"
Rush’s Two If By Tea doesn’t come in cans, does it?
This has “liberal” all over it.
