    Have some pictures posted by a feller I know showing the harvest of a solid white or pibald (sp?) bobcat taken in Laurel County. It has apparently been confirmed by KDFW that it is fact a bobcat, and is the only one ever on record for Kentucky. I can't put the pictures up from work, but if anyone wants to take a look see, I can put them up later on. Just wondering if anyone else had heard about it?

    I just got home from work.....Here are the pictures the guy posted. Again, he said it had been confirmed by F&W to be a Bobcat.

    Well it does have a bobtail, but I'm not sure I'm convinced just yet.

    It's head and body structure makes it look like a Bobcat to me as well. Like I said, I don't know the entire story behind it, but the guy who posted it said it had been confirmed by KDFW, and was the only one on record. Maybe some KDFW insider can chime in and let us know more. I'm just the messenger....

    Look at them short legs and little feet. Looks like "granny's poor Ol' white tomcat" to me.

    Could very well be, I don't know. Just passing along the information I've seen. Hey, look at it this way, we could put it in with all the big cat information around here....Only this is part of the little cat saga....

    That thing is strange looking. Could be a half breed......and yes, they do exist.

    I don't see a bobcat myself. Just looks like a feral cat to me. I would like to know how they came to that conclusion.

    It's tough to tell from the pics, but to me it does look like a bobcat. I see ear tufts and faint spotting. If so, a rare animal. I would like to have seen it in person.

    Looks like a bobcat to me. I hope the hunter is getting a good taxidermist to mount it.

    Joe, I was hoping you would chime in on this. I was going to contact you to see if you had heard about it, but seeing your post, I assume not. To me, it has many bobcat characteristics. Again, I just seen the pictures posted elsewhere and the information that went along with it was that officials with KDFW had confirmed it to be a bobcat as well as the only one on record in Kentucky.
