Comforting info regarding this cat IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on July 28, 2015 at 01:12:13 PM by weather01089
The cat has not been seen since Sunday, when it eluded a large contingent of police that thought they had it contained. Clearly they have never met a cougar, assuming this likely is based on the evidence. A couple of pieces of comforting information:
“From my understanding, it was a 100% confirmation that it was a lion-like animal. They know it`s a cat-like animal — could be a young African lion or could be a mature mountain lion/cougar species. Unfortunately we weren`t able to keep visibility on it long. It went into some thick vegetation,” MPD Lt. Paul Formolo said Sunday.
“Anytime there’s a confirmed sighting — they stand down and let the tranquilizer guns be prepared. We’re going into each scenario with tranquilizing being the first option,” MADACC Executive Director Karen Sparapani said.
