A man was completely baffled after discovering a “hidden spy camera” attached to a cat food box.
Yes, there was a secret spy device stuck in a box full of Purina Gourmet.
The man who found it – and who wishes to remain anonymous – apparently has absolutely no idea how he got there, or more importantly, why.
He had just gone to the stores to get some food for his two cats, Goliath and Lilliput, and after returning home he put the food in the cupboard and left it there.
However, a few days later, his girlfriend went to fetch food for her pets and noticed a hole in the box.
Upon inspection, they claimed to have found a camera and transmitter hidden inside.
In the current situation, he hasn’t been able to recover any footage from the camera, but the important question seems to be why and how I got there in the first place.
Apparently, the camera was inserted into the box, hidden inside, and then packaged in a seemingly sealed way.
The man bought cat food from Welcome, a franchise of Co-op, who were ‘worried’ about the discovery.
The unknown man said to the mirror, “The strangest thing I didn’t notice when I bought it. I went to the Co-op at Crystal Palace and took it off the shelf for the cats.”
“Yesterday evening my girlfriend was taking it out of the closet and she said, ‘What is this? “
“At first we couldn’t tell what it was, then we realized there was clearly a camera coming out of the cat’s head.
“It really kind of threw us off.
“I went back and looked at where this shelf was, where the cat food would have been, and most of this shelf faces a bunch of bottled water but is kind of facing in a storage room area.”
He has three theories – it was planted in the Purina factory, in the store to monitor employees, or by someone looking to discover something tricky.
He continued, “In the box, there was a camera, and kind of a box which is the camera mechanism, and then a transmitter. So I think you should be close by, they should be connected to Wi-Fi. -wifi.”
Also, there was no battery in it. I plugged it into a USB port, I don’t think it had a charge, and it didn’t have a battery.
“I think it broadcasts to something, it doesn’t store data, but it doesn’t seem to have any power. Maybe it can take a charge, I could be wrong. I don’t know, it’s very strange.
“I think anything could be true, no matter how weird the answer is – if it was in a cat food factory, why would they let it be sold? If it was done by a Co-op, why was it left on the shelf, if it was a member of the public why would they do it ?
“We were kind of scared, I’m keeping it because I think it’s cool, it’s in the closet facing the wall at the moment.
“If you’re going to put a spy cam in something, why put it in cat food, because that’s something you just put in the cupboard so you don’t see anything.
“And why didn’t they hide the camera in the cat’s eye? It’s a pretty untechnical rendition, no matter who did this.”
A Welcome Central Hill spokesperson said: “We are deeply concerned about this matter and grateful that it has been brought to our attention.
“The cat food is located across from our office door, so it could be a serious security issue.
“We invite the customer to speak to us directly so that we can investigate this matter further and, if necessary, speak to the police.”
“We invite the client to speak to us directly so that we can further investigate this matter and, if necessary, speak to the police,” Purina said.
