Big cats cause big problems.
A suburb near Detroit was on high alert last week when a large cat kept as a pet escaped its owner. Fortunately, the animal was rescued without anyone being hurt.
The cat, a large African caracal, escaped from its owner‘s garage last Wednesday, reports Southwest News Service (SWNS). The animal is apparently one of four big cats that are kept in cages in Royal Oak, Michigan, a suburb near Detroit.
Animal cages would be designed to allow them to come and go from the garage.

Two of the cats escaped through an open door, but one was lured into his home with raw meat. The other cat, however, was able to run away.
After spending 24 hours at large, he was eventually caught by South Lyon Murphy Lost Animal Recovery after being spotted in a resident’s yard. The cat has since been returned to its owner.
âFortunately, we were able to capture the cat without harming it,â said a South Lyon spokesperson Murphy Lost Animal Recovery. “People are immediately afraid of the cat’s appearance and sound, but they are not aggressive unless threatened.”

The spokesperson continued, “These domesticated cats don’t meow. They use hissing as a form of communication with each other. I hope this will be the last time we have to intervene and the cats will now be watched more closely. . “
