In the video, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sgt. Janelle Shoihet spoke regarding the double murder of Lucas Robertson Fowler and Chynna Noelle Deese, an Australian man and American woman, which took place in British Columbia earlier this week. The cat filter’s effects, which included cat ears and whiskers, can be seen in a screenshot of the video taken by National Post correspondent Tyler Dawson, according to The Daily Hive.

Though some assumed the filter was a prank, the police department replied to a screenshot of the video and confirmed that it was actually just a mistake caused by an “automatic setting.”

This isn’t the first time the cat filter has made an unexpected appearance during a press conference. Last month, Pakistani regional minister Shaukat Yousafzai had a press briefing that resulted in an unexpected twist when the cat filter was applied to the faces of people being recorded via Facebook Live. The incident was just a case of human error, but quickly went viral on Twitter once viewers began to pick up on it.
