Serval loose in the Colorado foothills/mountains

I came across this thread today on a local website for people living here in the foothill areas of Colorado.
Thought it may be of interest to some of you.

So far as I know, serval are not native to Colorado... Another example of exploited wildlife inappropriately "appropriated" or bred as pets and then let loose or escaped into inappropriate environs...

...or maybe they're invading . There was one in the Georgia Tech area of Atlanta earlier this year. Scouting new territory, perhaps? If so, we need to direct them to FL to tangle with all of the burgeoning Burmese python population.

Someone got this poor thing on film. It's not afraid of humans but is starving to death. So upsetting....
