ROYAL OAK, Mik.

The body was reported missing around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in Royal Oak, authorities said.

The weight of a cat is estimated at 50 pounds. It was among four large cats kept in cages that allowed them to enter and exit the owner’s garage. Two escaped through an abandoned gate.

The owner used raw meat to lure one back into the closet, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The last missing cat was found near a primary school, according to the newspaper.

Royal Oak Police Lt. Albert Carter told The Detroit News that cats are kept in a non-governmental animal unit. The cats ran away from their owner’s home on two other occasions, Carter said.

They eat rats, other small animals and birds. They are also born in the Middle East, Central Asia, and India.

“The owner says there is nothing wrong with people,” Carter said. “They just happen, evening animals.”
