Big cat sighting not cleared – please be cautious
Statement from Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs July 22, 2015
The sighting and recorded video footage of a large cat in the Brewers’ Hill neighborhood in the 6th District on Sunday has become national news and is now daily fodder on social media and in neighborhood conversations across the city.
The case is being handled by Milwaukee police and is still active – the sighting has not been cleared and the information provided by witnesses has not been determined to be unfounded.
I urge my constituents and residents of the area to be cautious and aware of your surroundings at all times. Children and pets should be monitored closely when outdoors.
The joking social media posts have been entertaining during these past few days, but again I urge caution until police are able to clear the case.
Please call 9-1-1 immediately if you see the animal.
