TV News Report Searching For Wild Cougar Goes From Dangerous to Delightful When Interrupted By House Cat
In Hernando, Mississippi, Fox News reporter Scott Madaus took his report viral when his search for a dangerous wildcat took a funny turn, resulting in footage of an adorable, docile house cat.
See for yourself:
The reporter told Buzzfeed that the footage, which appears candid, was actually planned as a way to tease the report before a commercial break.
His little ruse obviously worked, because people were loving it online:
