Bobcat joins two tigers, lynx as legal "pets" in Nevada county

Feb 20, 2007 09:45 AM EST

An 18-pound bobcat is now officially a pet in Antelope Valley.

The county Animal Control Board ordered the bobcat named Katrina spayed and issued an exotic pet permit last week.

Animal Control Supervisor Mitch Schneider says the cat has been raised as a pet since it was five weeks old. It’s now a little more than a year and a half old.

He adds that it’s living in an area where people own more than 100 acres.

Along with the bobcat, Schneider says active permits are in effect for two Bengal tigers in Palomino Valley, two pythons in the Lemmon Valley area, a monkey at Pyramid Lake and a lynx cat in Incline Village.
