    Default African cat hunting in Anchorage

    ADN just posted a story about a suspected African cat running loose in Anchorage. I wonder how much it would cost to put that skin up on your wall.:D

    i think i would be careful on that one... back in 98? 99? a guy shot a lion in wrangle.. he got to see the inside of the F&G jail system and fines... seems it was the first reported incident of a lion in AK thus making it endangered....

    Like a mountain lion or an african lion?
    I thought you were alowed to shoot non resident species.

    In all seriousness I am not going to go hunting for it just thought it would be interesting.

    Thumbs up it was caught this afternoon..

    it was a savannah cat, a serval x domestic hybrid, and thus legal to possess. it had escaped from it's owner this spring, and they have been reunited.
