'Panther-sized' black cat spotted in La Quinta
LA QUINTA, Calif. (KABC) -- Authorities are conducting a search in La Quinta for what one resident described as "a large, panther-sized black cat," on the roof of a house.
Riverside County Sheriff's Department investigators said the cat was seen about 8 a.m. Saturday in the 78000 block of Calle Remo.
"They said it was much larger than a house cat and looked more like a black panther," investigator Matt Diaz said.
California Fish and Game officers, along with deputies, searched for hours but were unable to find the animal.
One neighbor told deputies that a cat of a similar look was seen on a La Quinta golf court last week.
