STAFFORD TOWNSHIP (AP) -- An Ocean County woman faces another court date after her pet bobcat escaped for the second time since March.

Rocky was gone for about an hour after breaking out of his enclosure at Ginny Fine's Stafford Township home on Saturday.

Fine in May regained custody of the animal, which she claims is a hybrid of a bobcat and Maine coon cat, after a court-ordered DNA test proved inconclusive.

She would have needed a special permit if Rocky was determined to be a purebred bobcat.
