Re: [BCRVolunteers] Serval Found in Atlanta

If a serval can escape in GA, where it will not decimate wild
populations, why do they not worry that servals will escape in
Australia, where they will kill wild animals?

I called the GA Dept. of Natural Resources to offer assistance with the
Serval they picked up, but they said they have a facility already that
they usually send cats to.

Before they called me back with that information, I called Animal
Control there to ask if they still had possession of the cat, and they
said a number of people have already called saying that it was their
cat and they were coming to claim the cat. She said she was sure that
one of them really would be the owner and that the cat would go back
with them.

When DNR called me back I said, tongue in cheek, that there must a lot
of loose servals if one is at the pound, ready to go home with his
owner and one has been sent to a rescue facility all in the same day.
I was told, "You would be amazed."
