DNR: Bobcat killed cat, not mountain lionApril 25, 2019
By The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — State wildlife officials say an animal that killed a southern Indiana family’s pet cat in March was a bobcat, not a mountain lion.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources received a report March 11 that an animal, possibly a mountain lion, had killed a domestic cat in Brown County.
DNR staff examined the cat’s carcass and found bite measurements that could be consistent with either a bobcat or small mountain lion.
But the agency said Wednesday that eight of 10 DNA swabs of saliva taken from a bite wound on the cat detected bobcat DNA.
The DNR said none of the swabs detected mountain lion DNA and “the combination of genetics and the bite measurements leads us to conclude that a bobcat, not a mountain lion” kill the domestic cat.
