It seems to me that Sgt. Kevin Daley was just looking for a headline. As for the cat's attacker, "my best estimate would be a coyote," he said, citing other possibilities such as a bobcat, mountain lion or even a loose rottweiler."

I'm disappointed that the Danville Weekly even printed this comment.
