Josh Beckett Is Just A Big Ol’ Cat Lover
In a surprising move, one which finds Josh Beckett caring about anything, the Dodgers pitcher is suing a pipeline company for putting a habitat of the endangered ocelot, one that allegedly lies on his ranch, at risk. It's good to see Beckett razzed about something, I guess?
According to Yahoo! Sports:
Beckett said he saw the 15 to 30-pound cats on his property as recently as last fall, but the outfit he's suing — the Eagle Ford Shale pipeline company — claims there were no ocelots to be found. Ocelots are primarily found in South America, Central America and Mexico, but have been known to be spotted north of the border. The News-Express reports the estimated U.S. population of the cat is just around 50 ocelots.
And according to the original report in the San Antonio Express-News, "if the company is found to have destroyed habitat and harmed the species, it will be in violation of federal law and could face fines and be forced to do mitigation for harming the ocelot."
If only Josh tried this hard to save either the Dodgers' or Red Sox's seasons this year. Well, no one can blame him for try to save the endangered cat. Especially not one Sterling Archer, who now is most certainly a Beckett fan:
