Reported: Jul 19, 2007
Location: Guilford County, North Carolina

Summary: A large cat, either a bobcat or a lynx, was spotted by a passerby in a minivan at a local auto auction. The passerby called Guilford County Animal Control because the animal was exposed to severe heat being locked in the van. The van's owner received a $50 citation and his sister, the possessor of the cat, might also have been cited. Authorities were checking on the legality of owning an exotic cat in the woman's hometown in Georgia.
