The National Zoo in Washington D.C.is missing a seven-year-old, 25-pound bobcat named Ollie, who escaped from her enclosure Monday morning presumably after hearing rumors of Trump's latest executive order plans for a large cat registry and said, "fuck this shit".

The approximately 25 lb. bobcat was last counted at 7:30 a.m. this morning by a keeper.

Animal Care staff conducted an immediate search and have not located the bobcat. It is believed that she may return to her familiar grounds for food and shelter. However, bobcats are not known to be aggressive to humans, the zoo said. At the zoo, the bobcat is known as Ollie.

The bobcat, whose name is Ollie, was accounted for at 7:30 AM.

In November, the team's plane ran out of fuel, killing 71 people on board, many of them players, officials and reporters. The widows of the players who were killed also received medals on behalf of their husbands in a moving ceremony.

However, bobcats are 'very elusive, ' spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson said.

Although the majestic Ollie was born in the wild, she is not considered a danger to the public. "We are prepared for the eventuality that she is not recaptured". 'It will be very, very hard to find her'. Officials believe she likely climbed through an opening in the mesh net that encloses her habitat.

A bobcat has gone missing after apparently escaping its enclosure at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, the zoo said Monday.

"She is a carnivore, so for small birds, small animals in the area, which could even include small cats and dogs, she could be a threat", Smith said Monday. Keepers do routine checks of all animals at the Zoo first thing in the morning.
