Two Indiana residents got the surprise of their lives Thursday night when the "bobcat" they shot turned out to be something quite different.

Indiana wildlife officials say it was a leopard.

On Friday morning, WDRB News was contacted by Donna Duke, a Kentuckiana resident who claimed to have photographs of a leopard that was shot at a home on State Road 3, just outside of Charlestown in Clark County, Ind.

A leopard in Indiana? Whoa, that's weird.....

Several miles from where I live, is a ranch, and they don't have cows....they have a ton of buffalo, and antelope, a few ostriches and 4 or 5 zebras....every time we drive past there, I love to look at the buffalo grazing....

Not surprising considering there is a multimillion dollar industry of big cat trade in the US alone, for private ownership and and for so called "canned hunts". It's sad really these poor cats are brought into the world by breeders, sold to the highest bidder and end up in bad conditions, or worse end up being tame, easy targets for people to shoot in canned hunts. They literally open the cage the cat is in, it walks out and they shoot, not really hunting it, just giving someone who paid money the ability to shoot a defenseless big cat probably raised as a pet who got too big to keep.

“The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance …or change... logic can be happily tossed out the window. Religious mania is one of the few infallible ways of responding to the worlds vagaries, because it totally eliminates pure accident. To the true religious maniac, it’s ALL on purpose” – Stephen King, The Stand

Big cats - leave them in their native habitat.  They don't belong anywhere else except zoos and  nature preserves, as last resort.
