Animal Control Commission to set traps for lion-like animal

Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission. or MADACC, plans to set live traps around the city.

They're not telling where but they plan to put them out in the morning and evening hours. The time the big cat seems to be most active.

The large traps will be manned to keep people or other wild animals from getting hurt, and they're setting out some comfort foods.

The extra measures are needed after several sightings have tied up officers from working beat calls.

The traps are not lethal, and if the lion-like animal is caught he'll be sent to an animal sanctuary about an hour away.

MADACC’s latest theory is that the cat may have been an illegal exotic pet, and by now he's likely scared and hungry.
