Oregon: "Pet" serval escapes…again

Posted by The Oregonian Newsroom November 6, 2006 16:38

An African wildcat escaped from its owner early today west of Aurora and remains at large.

Crystal Bacon, owner of the 3-year-old male serval, told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that the 25-pound cat hisses at people or other animals but has not shown other aggressive tendencies. The cat, which looks like a small cheetah, has been de-clawed.

Bacon called police at 11:30 Sunday night to report the cat missing from her home in the 12000 block of Fargo Road Northeast.

Deputies found the cat about 1:30 a.m. today, and Bacon came to get it. But she told deputies the animal got away again on her way home. Anyone who sees it should call 9-1-1.
