Last week a lady near me reported her "domesticated' bobcat was loose. This started a huge "cathunt" by police and Fish and Game Officers. "Rocky" was captured and confiscated because it's illegal to own a bobcat in NJ. She's heartbroken because he's declawed and just a big 'housecat.She got him from a breeder in MT. and claims he's a hybrid which is legal Breeder says they dont breed hybrids. Now their doing DNA tests to determine this. My question is why not get a regular cat? And doesnt this breeder know that they're illegal to own here? I really feel sorry for the animal, after being a house pet I hope he ends up in a nice situation.
