DETROIT (AP) — Stray dogs are a common sight in Detroit. What about a big cat?
The Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/19Qn5wX) reports that many residents on the city's northeast side have seen what appears to be an exotic cat, perhaps as tall as 4 feet, roaming the streets. The Michigan Humane Society says it will try to find the cat.
Antwaun Asberry, a 6-foot-5 Detroiter, says the cat's tail is longer than his arm. The cat has large black spots and stripes, according to a photo.
Fourteen-year-old Paul Hatley says the cat stared back at him when he saw it a few days ago. He says the encounter scared him.
Neighborhood association leader Vondell Boyer wonders what will happen when the cat runs out of rabbits and other small animals to eat.
