    VLADIVOSTOK, July 29 (RIA Novosti) - A court in the Primorye Territory in Russia's Far East has ordered a woman to pay a 3,000 ruble ($128) fine for "illegal" feeding of stray cats, local court authorities said on Tuesday.

    The woman's neighbors, troubled by the animals that were taking shelter in the basement and nearby buildings, asked the court to help them fight the cat-lover.

    The court told the woman to stop feeding the cats for sanitary reasons. However, she was twice caught feeding the animals when court authorities came to visit her.

    A court spokesperson said the woman would continue to be fined until she complied with the court order.
