But we’ve got nothing on Kernersville, NC, about 90 miles down the road. Check this out. In December, a doctor who lives there photographed and filmed a big cat crossing the frozen pond in her back yard.
Terry Webb, the curator of mammals at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, is convinced that based on the shape and color of the animal, it’s not a house cat, but is more likely an African lion released by a pet owner.
Chris Kreh, the district biologist for the State Wildlife Authority, says he thinks the animal is a regular house cat.
Here are some more pictures. In one of these, the cat is a dead ringer for an African lion. In others, it looks more like some kind of cheetah to me. I don’t know what it is, but as an owner of a house cat I’d say its not a house cat.
What does it look like to you? Lion or house cat?
