On bloody call by AdarkerNEMISIS On bloody call by AdarkerNEMISIS
First time this has ever happened to me and I don't think it will be the last. Getting ready to go to bed and I get a message and a hour later a sheriffs truck pulls up and I'm working past midnight on a new fun project. 

I wish I had a camera I would of taken better pictures! The sheriff wanted to watch me skin it out and I requested documented papers which he said he will give me. First cat in my possession that is local and OKed by fish and game to own in the state of California  pretry damn cool! This cat is being "Donated" to our tribe.

Yes there's blood everywhere in Not going to put a graphic warning on it as it's not "that bad" trust me I made a bloody mess......from my toes to my hair. That shit was everywhere!

I feel you on the late-night project, I was up past 2 on the floor of a shed after driving for 7 hours the day before Thanksgiving because we picked up two coons and a young fox.

What an awesome experience though! Are you able to keep the pelt or were you just skinning it out for the town?

Haha had me worried there when I saw the picture, all I could think of was "Dude, isn't Kanato in California?!" What a neat experience though! What's the cat going to end up as?

I am glad your tribe was donated the animal to see it gets treated properly.

yup, was hit by a truck a few miles up the pass. sheriff had to shoot it twice to kill it. They called Fish and Game and got the approval of letting the Tribe have it. when I was messaged about it, they told me it was 55-70 pounds so I'm like..........OH KITTEN! THEY LIED! it was over 100 pounds. Sheriff delivered it past 11 and I worked on it immediately. wasn't done till after 1.

I wanted to make sure its 100% Legal. they all looked at me like........DUDE the sheriff hand delivered it and its on Tribal land. I just wasn't taking chances considering one of these bad asses can land you in federal prison here in California.

definitely a cool experience! never thought I would touch one of these in California!
