Maybe escaped exotic cat
Today I talked to Justin Krall, the wildlife officer assigned to the Westcliffe area. He said that there is someone who owns exotic cats that lives in the Westcliffe area. He thinks they own either servals or savannah cats. He said that these cats have gotten loose and have roamed as far as the Arkansas River which is ten or so miles from their home. He added that these cats have been neutered so they cannot breed with local animals.
Justin said he would check with the owner of the exotic cats and see if any have wandered off. SeEtta
