Species: Serval DOB: October 10, 2014 Sex: Male Arrival Date: October 10, 2019
Rescue Story: Hunter was purchased as a pet along with a female serval from a notorious Arkansas Breeder. In 2016, he and the female serval escaped their home and only Hunter was found. Since it is illegal to have servals as a pet in New Mexico his owner was given the choice to move or relinquish Hunter. His owner agreed to move. In 2019, reports came in of a wild serval in New Mexico, once he was captured they used a microchip to identify the serval as Hunter. His owner told law enforcement that Hunter had escaped the day he planned to move in 2016. When rescued from the wild, Hunter was in pretty good condition for a declawed cat that had allegedly been living in the wild for 3 years.
