An unidentified Indiana woman shot and killed a leopard in her backyard last week. The woman was worried about recent attacks on small animals and pets in her neighborhood, so she and her boyfriend stayed up all night and shot what they were told was "probably a bobcat." Authorities later said the cat had been identified as a leopard.
They believe the animal may have been someone's pet and that it was about nine months old.
