Man high on meth skins bobcat, eats it, authorities say
Henry Arnibal, 38, of Morgan Hill was charged Monday with killing a bobcat without a permit, Santa Clara County Deputy Dist. Atty. Steve Lowney told the San Jose Mercury News.
Eating a bobcat is not illegal, but killing one without a permit is a fish and game violation.
Arnibal was arrested last week after deputies found 50 roosters and cockfighting spikes that attach to roosters' legs. They also discovered the bobcat's preserved carcass, which Arnibal told authorities had eaten five of his roosters.
The newspaper reported that he killed the animal with a .22-caliber rifle.
