Artist makes mountain lion sightings fun and knowledgeable

CANTON, OH (WOIO) -

Since the recent "mountain lion" sightings in the Canton area, a local artist and animal enthusiast is hoping to raise awareness as to why exotic animals should not be kept as pets.  

Vicki Boatright developed a Twitter account  in the hopes that:

1) it would create some empathy for the animal who seems to be provoking a lot of fear, yet people have little awareness of his/her own struggle in being in an ill-advised habitat
2) it would bring some attention from national groups that deal with animal welfare concerns to address the problem of exotic animal being brought into inappropriate habitats.

 If you would like to follow Vicki you can do so @CantonMntnLion.
