An exotic African serval cat is on the loose in Washington State. The feline is named Tango, and according to Gig Harbor police the pet escaped on Sunday, reports KING-TV.
Tango’s owner Salan Weier said the six-year-old cat will likely run away if approached, and can reach up to 40 mph for sustained distances. She said, “More than likely, he’s going to run away from everybody. He’s afraid of everything. He’s used to dogs, so dogs don’t bother him. He’s not gonna harm a dog.”
However, it is not the first time he has wandered away. Tango also escaped two years ago.
Tango is 40 pounds, 3 feet long and 2 and a half feet tall. His owners say Tango may hiss and bare his teeth at strangers, but is declawed and does not bite.
