Rocky’s heritage is still a mystery that could be revealed at a court date next week.

The results of DNA testing to determine if the 38-pound feline is pure bobcat or a hybrid of bobcat and Maine coon cat are not yet available, according to Bob Considine, a spokesman for the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The bottom line anon is that the warden at Popcorn said they abducted the feline because the Stafford Gestapo asked them a favor. The fact of the matter is the implied deal was you can't afford to lose another contract, so grease my wheels and I'll grease yours. That's how big machines are built. It's just one big party of panderers.

It appears that over time Rocky has become pretty domesticated. I have not read in any article that he ever attacked anyone. Although he will always retain his natural instincts, if he has been declawed and if his fangs have been ground so that they are no longer sharp, I don't see how he can be a threat. I am sure he is being treated well at Popcorn Park, but to be away from familiar surroundings for a protracted period of time is not helping him.
