Woman attacked by neighbor's pet lynx in Atlanta
ATLANTA - Atlanta police say a woman was attacked by her neighbor's pet Siberian lynx and has been hospitalized.
Spokesman Greg Lyon says officers were called to a home in the affluent Buckhead neighborhood after a woman said her friend had been attacked by the large cat Tuesday afternoon.
Police say the owners of the animal, which can weigh up to 90 pounds, were out of town and made arrangements for their exotic pet to be fed while they were away. Lyon says the lynx is now in its cage and local animal control officials have been notified.
Lyon says the woman was bleeding heavily from her head. Details of her condition weren't immediately available.
