An Indiana couple got the surprise of their lives recently when they found out the bobcat they shot in their backyard was really a leopard.
"Perhaps an immature cat about 9 months old," he told WDRB News. "DNR is attempting to determine who it belonged to, or where it came from."
"In any case, it would be someone's pet, since leopards are not native to Indiana, or for that matter, to North America," he said, adding that it's legal to own big cats in Indiana, but it requires a permit.
