"Wiseguy" star Wahl wants to know who glued cat to I-90
Actor Ken Wahl says he's so appalled by the cruelty visited on a cat found glued to Interstate 90 in South Dakota that he's making a unique donation to the reward being offered to catch the culprit: The Golden Globe award he won for his work as Vinny Terranova in the 1980s TV series, "Wiseguy." Travelers found the cat glued to I-90 in December, just over the Minnesota border in South Dakota; during the rescue, they accidentally ripped off some of its claws and paw pads. Injured and starving, the cat died five days later.
Wahl has been out of the public eye and down on his luck in recent years. An accident left him too injured to act, and he disappeared into a battle with booze. Last year he began a court battle to recoup millions of dollars he claims an ex-wife swindled from him.
