Reporter Goes Viral As He Appears To Claim A Cat Is Dangerously On The Loose
Ever since the first live television broadcast, it's been the gift that keeps on giving.
Anything can happen, which means that anything can go wrong and more often than not it does.
A recent example came on Fox 13 news, during a report about a 'large cat' that had been spotted in Hernando, Mississippi, believed to be a cougar or a panther.

So, it seems like there's one of four things that has happened here.
The fella claiming to have seen a jungle cat on the loose is off his face on LSD and has mistaken a common house cat for a beast. On the other hand he could just be trolling local news, which he has done successfully.
The third possibility is that the wise domestic cat has heard the reports and rushed to the scene to troll the station. It's possible.
The final, and most likely (in fact this is 100 percent what happened) scenario, is that it's just a coincidence that the cat turned up at the exact moment a reporter warned a town to be on the look out.

Scott Madaus thankfully came away without a scratch on him and managed to see the funny side of the incident.
He shared the clip on Facebook, saying: "The cat that stole the show. Not really sure how my live tease made social media, let alone international social media. But here you go if you didn't catch it."
I bet he's been terrorizing the neighborhood for years.

As funny as it is, if you are in the Hernando, Mississippi area don't be deterred away from the fact there's apparently a dangerous beast on the loose.
A wildlife expert told WMC Action News 5 told people they shouldn't attempt to approach it, feed it or corner it.
If you're currently thinking: "Ah, right. Best not to go out and try and tame this beast," then have a word with yourself, pal.
