Servals Found Wandering Seattle

Two African serval cats found wandering in West Seattle


Associated Press – January 24, 2008 1:15 PM ET

SEATTLE (AP) – A serval is a wild cat native to Africa that can weigh up to
50 pounds.

Sometimes they are illegally kept as exotic pets, and 2 of them apparently
got away in the past month to wander around West Seattle. Both are about 1 year
old and had been de-clawed.

Animal Control picked up one on Jan. 1 as it was going after some cat food
left on a doorstep. Officers picked up the second one Saturday on the grounds of
Madison Middle School.

Officer Don Baxter suspects they both belonged to the same owner, who has not
claimed them. One has already been moved to a sanctuary in Redmond.
Baxter says servals are predators that would go after smaller animals such as
pet rabbits or chickens.
