Bobcat confiscated at N.C. auto auction returned to Ga. owner
GREENSBORO — The exotic cat that made an unscheduled appearance at a Greensboro auto auction last week is back in the hands of its owner, Guilford County Animal Shelter officials said Monday.
Shelter director Marsha Williams said the cat’s owner, Ladonna Montgomery, returned during the weekend and paid $60 to have the animal returned. Williams said Guilford shelter staff had confirmed that it was legal for Montgomery to have the cat, identified by shelter staff as a bobcat.
Animal-control officers had confiscated the declawed cat after a man who had identified himself as Montgomery’s brother had brought it Thursday to a Greensboro auto auction.
