Cat Attack in Lanco


State officials are investigating the attack of an Amish man in southern Lancaster County by what’s being described as a big cat.

Samuel Fisher was attacked near his home shortly before nightfall Thursday. He had seen the cat in a farm field and fired at it, then was attacked by an animal while pursuing the cat.

Fisher apparently wounded the cat, and the Game Commission is hoping to find evidence that will help them determine what kind of animal it was.

Mountain Lions haven’t been in Pa since the 19th century, so it’s not clear what the thing was.
