Ezekiel Elliott’s father, Stacy Elliott, has been charged by an Ohio sheriff’s office with illegally owning a serval cat, an African wild cat, that was shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy in October after the cat attacked a dog. Turns out you need to have a permit to own a serval cat and Stacy didn’t have one.
Stacy Elliott, also known as El Muhammad has been charged with failure to notify dangerous wild animal (DWA) escape, falsification, obstruction of official business, allowing a dangerous wild animal to escape, failure to notify law enforcement of DWA escape, failure to have DWA signage at property entrance, possession of a DWA, failure to obtain DWA permit, and failure to have DWA signage on cage.
Investigation began after a Fairfield County Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed the exotic serval cat in October 2019. Neighbors say the serval cat attacked a small dog at a home on Laurelwood Drive.
