Yep it honestly happened and she has video of the cat on her porch to prove it . Lady in SW MO saw the cat come out of the woods and head straight for her , said her dog distracted it for a few and she managed to get in the house . Black panther chasing you and do you get a gun or call the cops ? No , we have to get the camera out and make a video and from the news pictures perhaps a few stills to boot . Cat was on her porch apparently trying to scratch the screen window out . She finally called the police who unfortunately killed the cat , turned out it was a declawed 60 lber and from the looks it was a true Black leopard not a black phase mountain lion . How silly we Americans are , run for a video camera when we need a gun , if that cat had had it's claws and been full grown she might very well have been it's dinner for the day , that mesh screen wouldn't have even slowed it down that much . I see this as perhaps another victim of the Oil companies greed . With the prices of everything skyrocketing how many people who own these exotic animals will be able to afford to continue feeding them ? How many in rural areas will simply open the cage and let them go free ? Of course just like the collapsing economy it wont be their fault when someone gets killed by an African Cat in America they really needed to make that extra 50+ billion dollars more in profits while the rest of us are trying to simply survive .
