PEARL RIVER, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — People in a suburban town got a strange reverse 911 call on Monday, telling them to be on the lookout for an aggressive animal that’s been attacking neighbors and pets.
As CBS2’s Lou Young reported, Pearl River has been on the lookout for an aggressive black cat.
Chris McKiernan had a Fourth of July encounter with a ferocious feline near a neighbor’s back door. It was a feral, possibly rabid animal.
The run-in put a damper on outdoor activity in part of Pearl River, in southern Rockland County.
“It’s been like lockdown. I feel bad for the kids, they’re afraid to go out,” McKiernan said.
The cat bites, scratches, and gets away. Several people and a dog have been injured over three days. Pets are confined or on a short leash. Those who have met the attack cat said they’ll never forget it.
