Police Blotter of the Day: Bay Area man accused of skinning, eating bobcat
Where I come from, that verb would be “applauded for.”
Investigators said the bobcat made five of Henry Arnibal’s 50 roosters into a tasty meal.
Arnibal was not pleased with the bobcat eating his roosters, so the Morgan Hill man shot the big cat with a .22-caliber rifle and turned the tables, Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Steve Lowney said.
Prosecutors said Arnibal used tools to skin the bobcat before eating it.
Eating a bobcat is not illegal, but it is against the law to kill one, Lowney said.
Prosecutors said Arnibal was high on methamphetamine when he killed and ate the bobcat.
