The Caturday Report! Giant Cat Terrorizes Detroit Neighborhood

Ambling down the block a couple of weeks ago with his 1-year-old daughter perched on his shoulders, Antwaun Asberry sensed something was behind him.

He turned around and spotted a tall creature that appeared to be a cat, only a lot bigger.

"His tail is longer than my arm," Asberry, a 6-foot-5 Detroiter with a lanky build, said of the cat. "I was like, what the (expletive) ... I don't know what it is. I just want it gone."

  A photo taken by Nathan McGuire, 47, of Detroit, shows the cat to be gray with black marks.

Last Saturday, his 12-year-old ran into the house screaming after spotting the big cat, McGuire said. McGuire rushed out to find the cat, but it scampered away. A few days ago, he spotted it outside his home, its yellow eyes starting back at him.

"I've never seen a cat that big — even on TV," McGuire said.

Paul Hatley, 14, ran into the cat a few days ago while walking down Joann, where St. Raymond-Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church anchors the block.

"It wasn't normal," he said of the big cat. "It didn't run away like a normal cat. It just stared at you. ... It was scary."
