    Texas Officer Dies After Being Bit by Feral Cat
    A West Texas A&M University police officer died Tuesday after being bitten by a feral cat two week ago while responding to a call.

    Cpl. Monty Dale Platt suffered complications following a severe reaction to a medicine prescribed to prevent infections from the bite, according to The Amarillo Globe-News.

    Platt was taken to an urgent care center last Thursday after he reported not feeling well because of the reaction to the medication. He was admitted to an ICU that day and on Friday was transferred to the Burn Unit at University Medical Center in Lubbock.
