Portuguese Soccer Star Accused of Killing Black Cat

Oh Mrs. Barky won't be happy to hear about this one. She's Portuguese, and has a black cat (although the cat in question has more of a fatal attraction type thingy for me.

Portuguese soccer star Luis Figo
is accused of running down a black cat believing it brought him bad luck. This according to the Italian newspaper Libero (you can see their awful website here). Figo denies the charge.
Figo denied killing the cat in a statement released on Inter's website on Saturday.

"It's is completely untrue. I want them to apologise otherwise I will be obliged to take legal action," he said.

Inter claimed that Figo was "gravely offended on a human level" by the false accusation.
