LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – 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.
Duke spoke with WDRB News by phone. She says her friend -- who wishes to remain anonymous and did not want to speak with the media -- lives in that area, which had seen a number of attacks against dogs and cats recently. Duke's friend has a number of cats, and was worried about their safety.
