I’m sure you’ve heard all those reports of people seeing large cats and strange animals… think that eyewitness reports can be taken at face value? Well here is ANOTHER case that shows they can’t.
Kirsten Bright and her sister Taylor were just about to complete their first 20-mile bike ride on the Platte River Parkway Trail late Monday morning when they approached a police officer holding a large gun.
“(The officer) stopped us and told us there was a mountain lion in the area so we couldn’t get back to my car,” Kirsten recalled Tuesday in interviews with the Star-Tribune over the phone and on Facebook. “We were kind of stranded.”
“There was definitely a feline type animal, but we don’t believe it was a mountain lion,” said Robin Kepple, public information specialist for Wyoming Game and Fish. “It looked to be a large, domestic-type cat, but we’re not certain.”
Yep. A house cat.
