(CHARLESTOWN) - Indiana Conservation Officers say a resident near Charlestown in southern Indiana shot and killed a leopard.

Officials say they were called by a landowner who shot a large cat Thursday evening. After arriving at the scene, the cat was identified as a leopard, which is not a native species to North America or Indiana. It is believed that someone had been keeping the animal as a pet.

An investigation is ongoing and Conservation Officers are working with USDA and USF&W agencies to determine the origin of the animal.

If anyone has information relating to this incident, please call Indiana Conservation Officers Central Dispatch at (812) 837-9536 or 1-800-TIP-IDNR.
