It all happened in a flash. Cornered in her house in New Hampshire, disgraced British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in an early morning raid at the beginning of the month.
According to the Mail Online, “60 armed FBI agents and police” stormed the house in the early morning and arrested Maxwell on a charge of sex trafficking of children amid her association with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Injured and scared
But the in the midst of the melee it was Maxwell’s cat that apparently came off worst. A source with operational knowledge described how the cat was terrified after being injured at the start of the raid. The animal then ran from the house and was lost to nearby woods.
The cat had to fend for itself in an 156-acre area of woodland populated by bears. Shortly after the raid, FBI agents and lawyers for Maxwell began a desperate bid to find the cat.
Four days later the cat was found. It is, according to reports, doing well and recovering from its ordeal.
