First, David Sluder saw an enormous cat just off the road in Hernando, Mississippi. It appears to be a wild cat, maybe a cougar. He didn't get too close to it.
The local news team from Fox13 sent Scott Madaus out to the location to do a live report. He teased it beforehand with this live shot.
Well, that is a large cat, but not any larger than Garfield or your everyday big tom cat. The video and the resulting screen shot, seen at the top, went viral yesterday, and everyone got a bit of a laugh. Yes, Madaus did his tease when the house cat appeared on purpose.
"You have a very serious job being journalist, but at the same time when things like this happen you can't take yourself too seriously," he said.
