Panther Attack Worries Northwest Residents

Posted: Updated:

Residents a northwest Las Vegas neighborhood say they're worried about neighborhood safety after a panther attacked a pet dog in the back yard of a home near Ann Road and Durango Drive.

A resident says she called police after she saw the black cat wearing a blue harness walking along her back wall. Police tried to shoot the big cat, but it got away. A neighbor keeps a couple of pet panthers, but it's not clear if the animal came from there.
