MetLife Stadium’s Black Cat Still On Loose After Cowboys-Giants Game

A black cat runs on the field during the second quarter of a New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys game at Met Life Stadium

Animal rescuers are on the lookout for the brassy black cat that ran across the MetLife football field during a Cowboys-Giants game earlier this week.

The four-legged feline found its way onto the field and delayed "Monday Night Football" briefly before running down the tunnel.

The cat made its debut on the field during the second quarter of the match, leaving the referee with no choice but to suspend play for five minutes.

"From time to time we have seen cats on the complex and the Meadowlands Racetrack has a trap, neuter and release program in place and now feeds approximately 30 barn cats", the stadium said in its statement.

MetLife Stadium released an update on Wednesday night stating that they had set traps around the stadium but, despite their best efforts, the cat has not been located.

For a second, the cat jumped on the platform and then sprang out. It concluded its run along the conclude line just before functioning up the tunnel to the cheers of the group.MetLife Stadium was designed by the Giants and Jets using private funds.

"We are grateful for the outpouring of support and will continue to work with PuppyKittyNYCity to try to locate the black cat".

The search began on Tuesday morning with multiple humane traps and a search party.

Additionally, MetLife Stadium has set out to correct erroneous media reports suggesting they house upwards of 300 feral cats, noting that there are roughly 30 cats on the Meadowlands grounds and almost all are barn cats from Meadowland Racetrack where a TNR program is in place to keep them fed. After that arrived up empty, stadium officials asked PuppykittyNYCity - a lure, neuter, launch and no-kill shelter - for help. It was directed into the corner of the end zone and then sprinted across the end line to a camera platform.

The stadium disputed a New York Post report report quoting stadium employee who said he is nicknamed the "Cat Man", and who said he takes care of seven or eight colonies of more than 300 feral cats living in the complex.

With MetLife Stadium serving as the scene for seven more National Football League games this season, an encore appearance is far from out of the question.

In its statement, stadium officials denied a published report that said the 82,000-plus seat facility houses and feeds 300 cats. However, they did acknowledge that 30 barn cats occasional make their way over to MetLife from the Meadowlands Racetrack next door.
