Found: A Puma Under the Desk

It may have been seeking refuge from wildfires.

In Serra, outside of São Paulo, Brazil, some employees at a factory showed up to work on Monday and found a large puma lying down underneath a desk, according to Agence France-Presse. In a video, the puma was startled enough to growl a bit and show its teeth, but not enough, apparently, to get up and do anything about it.

“Good afternoon, followers,” some local firefighters who were called to the scene announced in a Facebook post, before going on to explain that they suspected the puma had been displaced from its natural habitat by “constant” wildfires.

They also included a nice photo:

The puma was taken to an animal rescue organization, according to AFP. Everyone, in the end, was fine, but that doesn’t make it any less startling to the workers, who will certainly be looking under their desks when they arrive at work for the foreseeable future.
