Have you heard about the “Cocaine Cat” in Cincinnati?
During a routine traffic stop, a large cat jumped out of the car and climbed a tree. Animal control captured the cat, took a DNA test, and tested for narcotics.
The DNA test confirmed the cat was an African serval. An “exotic” animal that is illegal to own in Ohio. The narcotics test confirmed that cat had exposure to cocaine. The owner surrendered the cat and is cooperating with authorities.
The cat is now recovering in its new home at the Cincinnati Zoo.
