Residents were shocked when they discovered a black panther last night, pictured left and right, strolling along the third floor of a house in Armentieres, northern France
Witnesses told local media that the black panther & # 39; would stop to watch a nearby train pass by or stare at a cat running down the street. & # 39;
According to local media, the panther walked for about an hour around the block of six brick houses from the 1930s.
Every now and then it went into an apartment, through an open window, before it came out again for more fresh air.
The Departmental Fire and Rescue Service of the North share information on Twitter and said they were confronted with a large cat walking in the gutters.
The emergency services were called just before 6.30 pm and set up a safety perimeter to ensure that the panther could not escape.
Shortly thereafter, the National Wildlife Conservation Authority was called to try to catch the cat.
Firefighters managed to catch the animal after entering an open window and a veterinarian calmed the panther, pictured left and right on the gutter, with a hypodermic gun
Making things a little easier for people on the ground animal entered a house and firefighters managed to capture it.
A veterinarian then used a hypodermic rifle to steer an anesthetic arrow into the panther so that it could be safely taken by the Animal Protection League.
Photos of the scene during the impasse with the black panther show the animal wondering along the gutters and looking at the street.
A local journalist shared a video and wrote: & # 39; Imagine that you are quiet in your house in Armentieres and that a black panther is coming past your window. & # 39;
One person shared photos of the panther from a building on the street in France
At one point the cat reached to the top of a window and seemed to test whether a jump on the roof was possible.
One person placed two photos of the cat, which is thought to weigh between 25 and 30 kilograms (55 and 66 lbs), walking along his gutter – make sure the windows were closed properly.
More than a dozen people took to the streets to watch the rescue operation last night.
A local police officer said: & # 39; I have never seen that in twenty years. A snake, yes. But not so & # 39; n big cat. & # 39;
The police are expected to question the owner of the panther on his return. In the meantime, the big cat would be transferred to a zoo.
