Calf Attack in Kansas Causes Concern


A Southeast Kansas farmer is concerned after a large animal attacked and killed one of his calves.

According to Norman Yoho from Le Roy. It was a large black panther.

In fact, the one that got his week-old calf on Saturday was around four to five feet in height and had a tail that was longer than its body.

Yoho says it happened with him standing about 50 feet away.

And this lifelong rancher has heard about similar attacks in the area.

"They can jump on anybody" said Norman Yoho. "They can be on trees, they can be on the brush, they can be on the ditches. And you don 't see them until they're already on you."
