MANAHAWKIN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – He’s at it again.
Rocky, a pet bobcat hybrid owned by Ginny Fine, has once again escaped.
It’s the sixth time the 38-pound cat has run away from Fine’s home in Manahawkin, N.J.
Owning purebred bobcats as pets is illegal, but Rocky is a hybrid of bobcat and Maine Coon. A judge, ruling that a DNA test on Rocky was inconclusive, decided that he could return home after a previous escape.
Fine has previously pled guilty to letting an animal run at large and had to pay a $250 fine. She was also held responsible for more than $400 to the zoo where Rocky was kept after the last time he escaped.
Anyone who spots Rocky is asked to call police at (609) 597-8581.
