Pa. Game Commission: Big cat attack a hoax
QUARRYVILLE, Pa. (AP) - October 20, 2008 -- The Pennsylvania Game Commission says there's no evidence to support a Lancaster County man's report that he shot a mountain lion and was injured by a second cat while tracking it.
The agency said Monday that state police crime lab tests showed a supposed blood trail wasn't blood. A search turned up no evidence of mountain lion hair, feces or tracks in the vicinity.
A knife the man says he used to fight with the animal near his Quarryville farm has deer hair on it. Further tests are being done on blood on the knife.
There hasn't been a confirmed sighting of a wild mountain lion in Pennsylvania for more than a century.
