Woman says a panther killed 7 pigs at her home
February 10, 2006
Whitehall — An Owen County woman says a suspected black panther killed seven pigs at her home last week.
It is the latest report over the past few years by Indiana residents of the large cats that aren’t supposed to exist in the state.
Sherry Rodman says she saw the cat attack the pigs before dawn one day last week as she was preparing to leave for work in nearby Bloomington.
State Department of Natural Resources officials are skeptical of such reports of big cats but believe any such animals are likely exotic pets that have been turned loose or escaped.
