NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) — Missouri state biologists say a big, black cat killed by a sheriff's deputy has been identified as a juvenile leopard.
James Dixon of the Missouri Department of Conservation says the cat was identified by the St. Louis Zoo.
Newton County Sheriff's Corporal Donn Hall shot the animal when it charged him on May 19. A woman had reported the cat was scratching at the door of her home near Neosho.
Leopards are native to Africa and Asia.
