Rocky the Bobcat is Headed Back to the Popcorn Park Zoo

Rocky the bobcat at Popcorn Park Zoo (Popcorn Park Zoo)

Rocky the Bobcat is heading back to the Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacey Township. According to the Asbury Park Press, a municipal court judge Friday ordered the Stafford Township bobcat seized from its owner Ginny Fine after she allegedly allowed the 38 pound exotic feline to run free yet again. Fine is reportedly planning to fight the order, which amounts to a fourth offense.

During Fine’s court appearance, Municipal Court Judge Damian Murray agreed to a brief adjournment to give Fine time to hire a lawyer. However, the adjournment does not delay Rocky’s immediate transfer to the zoo. Judge Murray noted at least six instances that they know of when the Bobcat was allegedly allowed to run at large.

Rocky was seized from Fine in March after breaking out of his cage and had been reported missing for 12 days. During that time, the public helped fine raise money to buy a better enclosure for the bobcat and she was able to prove through a court-ordered DNA test that Rocky was only part bobcat and not subject to rules restricting its ownership. Fine also promised not to allow the exotic animal to roam around the Stafford neighborhood again.
