Nifht Mnten during the open season on tor bearing animals often brought home tales of their dogs having been routed by a beast which they declared \ must be 4 panther. They reported hearing the screams of the animal tnd the condition of their dogs following a clawing by the beast offered additional evidence. ~ Three years ago, George Griz- ele, farmer of ihe locality, got near enough during a night hunting trip to put a load of shot into it. Grizzle was using No. 8 bird shot at the time and was too far from the creature to kill it. During the ensuing three years, the squalling of the animal from wooded areas was often reported and finally any reference to the beast was grounds for a joke re- gardlng the actual situation. But all the stories and tales of the mysterious animal were fin* ally verified when Louis Seehausen, farm resident of the locality four miles southwest of Hock- bridge', did some sharp shooting two nights ago and killed the beast which had invaded his premises, About S p. tn.

Seehausen's-flttention was directed to the chase when he heard the jqualJ of a strange animal. He started looking for his rifle and went to join the houndi In a wooded field some distance ffom the house. The squalls of the beast continued at intervals with the chase changing from one tree to another in the woodland. Finally the animal left the security of the woods and took off across an adjacent blue grass pas* lure. The two hounds knew their tactics for they pursued the beast across the pasture and brought it to bay, Seehausen followed and turned his flashlight onto the scene. It was a real picture for standing erect on its haunches and striking out with dangerous claws at the besetting hounds was one of the largest wildcats 'or bob cats to ever come into the area. Seehausen is noted for his marksmanship $nd this time he did an excellent job with the rifle. Shoot- Ing by the rays of his flashlight, he brought the wildcat down with a shot through the head. The animal was skinned the next day and while this was being done, Grizzle was able to Identify the beast as the same one he had shot into three years ago. Some of the No. 8 shot were still under the hide. Grizzle came to Jerseyvllle Saturday afternoon and reported the death of the wild cat. As additional proof, he brought along one Of the feet of the marauder. The pelt Of the Wild cat was black in color.
