ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Last Friday, while grilling on Jacob Todd’s rooftop patio near Dale Street and Grand Avenue, Todd and his girlfriend, Abigail Marcus, said they heard something disturbing.
“We both lit up a couple of cigarettes and there was a shriek from across the street in the Pier 1 Imports parking lot,” said Todd.
He said what he saw next was something completely unexpected. Todd and Marcus report they saw a mountain lion feasting a neighborhood cat.
“I put this one around 70 pounds,” Todd said. “It had a big long, balancing assisting tail, strong long legs and a firm slender long body.”
He called animal control but they were closed, so he dialed non-emergency dispatch.
“It then ran back behind Pier 1 and then after that we’re pretty sure we saw it right in between the two apartment buildings straight across from ours,” Marcus said.
