Stark County driver hits exotic animal | News
PERRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - A driver struck what appeared to be an exotic cat Wednesday morning.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says at first look, the animal appears to be a Bob Cat, but the tail and ears are much smaller than those of a Bob Cat. Officials say they believe this is a Serval, an African hybrid cat known as a Savannah. These are exotic animals which can be domesticated.
Most owners let the cats go when they can no longer manage them within their homes.
The driver, along with a city road crew member transported the cat to the Canton Repository for help.
So far, the owner of the cat has yet to be found.
