A man from the Marble Hill, Missouri, area shot and killed an intruder on his property Friday night -- but not before the trespassing bobcat killed four domestic kittens.
Larry Wiseheart returned home from dinner just after 9 p.m. Friday to find a bobcat had gotten into a small dog run on the back porch where the couple was housing a mother cat and several kittens.
"I tried to shoo it away. I had a large Maglite, and I ran along the fence and everything and tried to spook it and get it away from there, and it just laid there and looked at me," Wiseheart said. "So I went in the pen, and ... I waved the light at and it wouldn't move. And it growled at me, so I shot it."
