There were wild animals like lions, tigers, leopards and tigresses in other enclosures. We were frightened at the roar of the lions. At the same time it was awesome to see the king of the forest. When someone moved near the enclosure, the majestic animal began to roar. Then we moved to the den of the tiger. Its flashing glare and sharp teeth filled us with fear. We also saw the elephants and bears. Then we came across a big garden in which stags and deers were frisking about. These animals were very active, sharp and smart. In one corner of the garden there was a big tree on which a large number of monkeys and baboons were jumping. Their tricks and pranks were very pleasing. Some people threw bananas at them to which they immediately tried to catch by jumping down the branches. Children were enjoying by making faces at them.
Hi Sheila. I think you mean “brindle” in color and pattern in referring to the brindle coat. That sort of coat is a bit like a tabby coat it seems to me and if that is correct it would exclude the Florida Panther but include a wild cat hybrid like a Savannah. They can be over 20 lbs and they look wild. If it is a high filial (F1-F3) wild cat hybrid it should not be wandering around the neighbourhood because they are too special as you infer. They get shot at as a wild cat or stolen I guess because of their value. Of course it might be a sub adult puma because you say the cat looked like one.
