WildCat Chat ~ Ocelot Detained for Illegal Border Crossing ~ March 9, 2016

Ocelot detained for illegal border crossing


This ocelot was spotted trying to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S. and was apprehended by U.S. border patrol agents. When questioned by the agents, the ocelot invoked his right to remain silent. He spent the night in custody and is expected to be deported immediately. Meanwhile, agents are on the look out for a jaguarundi that was able to escape apprehension. The agents believe the pair is working together marking fences, sizing up wall heights, and digging tunnels. The agents suspect the pair may be part of an illegal wildcat network set up to help other wildcats cross the border. Their alleged leader, a large male jaguar has been eluding authorities. He is wanted in connection with supplying fraudulent microchips and GPS collars to wildcats that successfully cross the border and join native wildcats that are part of federal and state habitat and population studies. Several U.S. mountain lions are also wanted for providing assistance to illegal wildcat aliens. If you have any information regarding wildcats crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S., please contact your nearest U.S. border patrol office. only kidding, of course…
