Swansea, IL -(Effingham Radio)- You can have all the cats you want in Illinois, but not a bobcat.
A Metro East family says they found that out after Illinois Conservation Police seized their pet bobcat.
The Belleville News Democrat reports that Lakesha Mayweather is facing misdemeanor charges for bringing the cat into Illinois from a breeder in Missouri.
Mayweather has started an online petition and GoFundMe page to help get her cat, Capone, back.
