LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) -- Animal control officials have captured three African wild cats that escaped from a Southern California apartment over the weekend.
City News Service reports two female servals were found Saturday night within blocks of the Los Alamitos apartment where they were being kept as pets. A male serval was located Sunday night.
The servals, which are the size of a medium-sized dog and resemble cheetahs with their black spots, were taken to an animal sanctuary in Phelan.
The two females and male exotic pets were found near their owner's apartment and will be transported to the Forever Wild Cat Sanctuary in Phelan.
California Fish and Game officials are investigating whether the owner violated permit regulations.
