Woman arrested for cooking roommate’s ferret in oven


This roommate is eating meals in jail over what she allegedly tried to cook in the oven.

Ivana Clifford, 26, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly killing her roommate’s ferret by putting it in an oven at their apartment in Manchester, New Hampshire, according to news station WHDH reported.

Authorities said they were called around 3 a.m. about reports of smoke in the building.

Firefighters determined the source was the apartment’s stove and found the pet dead inside with burn marks.

Clifford’s roommate, Cara Murray, claimed that Clifford put the ferret, Angel, in the oven and turned on the heat.

“How can someone be so cruel to [put] an animal in your oven and cooking it alive,” Murray told WHDH.

She said the loss of her 2-year-old ferret has been “devastating.”

“To lose a ferret is like losing a kid,” Murray said. “I just can’t believe she did that.”

Clifford told police that she cooked the pet as revenge for her roommate stealing clothes.

The 26-year-old was arrested on animal cruelty charges. She is being held in custody on $10,000 bail.
