EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The elusive black cat from “Monday Night Football” is still on the run.
MetLife Stadium officials said Thursday the search for the fleet feline that briefly delayed the nationally televised game between the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys on Monday night has been unsuccessful.
The search started on Tuesday morning with multiple humane traps being stationed in the stadium. After that came up empty, stadium officials asked PuppykittyNYCity — a trap, neuter, release and no-kill shelter — for help.
PuppykittyNYCity said in a statement Thursday that if the cat is caught, it will be assessed for a home or relocation.
The cat scampered on the field during a Giants drive in the second quarter and forced referee Clay Martin to delay the game for roughly five minutes Monday night. Workers at MetLife Stadium and some New Jersey state troopers herded the feline toward the end zone away from the players.
