CALGARY, Alta. — A B.C. trucker is appealing to the Calgary public to provide any information about her missing African serval cat, which was stolen from her rig while fueling up at the RoadKing truck stop.
The exotic cat can be quite vicious, and must be fed a strict meat-only diet.
"I’m kind of worried," trucker Liz Gamlin of Sparwood, B.C., told local media. "These people don’t know what they’ve got their hands on…they just thought she was cool-looking maybe, and took her."
The cat looks like a cheetah and packs a vicious bite when upset, warned Gamlin, who was hauling a load of hanging meat to Moose Jaw, Sask. when she stopped in Calgary for fuel.
Serval cats are worth about $2,500. However, in Alberta there are fines for owning the cats without a permit that could reach up to $50,000. Gamlin is offering a reward of $400 for the return of her cat. Anyone who witnessed the theft is asked to call District 4 police in Calgary at 403-273-1888.
