Years of unconfirmed reports of a big cat roaming rural Allen County may have finally received visual documentation.
Fort Wayne resident Rob Peterson said he and his wife, Rita, were visiting neighbors in their Covington Woods subdivision in Aboite Township last Saturday when he noticed something moving in the brush behind the house. "I noticed a head sticking out. We just kept watching and the cat finally came out in plain view. We were all surprised by it but didn't make any attempt to get closer, just kept watching until it disappeared," he said.
