Reports of a lion in Wisconsin roaming the streets of Milwaukee persist as a stray cat has been found mauled to death in the area.
Residents in Milwaukee, Wisconsin have continued to report sightings of a large cat said to possibly be a lion.
While police cannot confirm this at this time, they are continuing to be vigilant none the less.
Reports of a lion in a major urban area are unusual, but not unheard of. Wildcats in the state of Wisconsin have been reported for many years, but only a few cases were ever confirmed.
Now with the report of a domestic cat being mauled to death, citizens and police are on the alert.
Said one resident:
We tried to get the kids in, and get the house pets in. It’s kind of scary.
