A farmer in Missouri sighted a "crazy-looking cat" several times over about six months. He also noticed feathers and bones, evidence that the cat had been hunting. The farmer set out a live trap and caught it. The family took it to a local veterinarian, who declared the cat to be a female African serval with no microchip. You have to wonder how a Missouri veterinarian reacted to someone bringing in a serval! Local authorities referred the farmer to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The refuge is already home to rescued big cats and a few servals. You can keep up with the serval's progress at Turpentine Creek's Facebook page. (via Gizmodo)

We've had 5 of those escape hereabouts in the last few months. One killed a housecat, chichkens and attacked a dog. People are starting to wonder why they aren't on a restricted list.
People should contact their state reps.
