Rocky, the pet bobcat notorious for escaping from his Stafford Township home, has been captured after getting loose for at least the third time this year, according to

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

Authorities located the 38-pound feline yesterday, a day after Rocky broke out of his enclosed pen Tuesday morning. A neighbor alerted police.

Stafford police said they found Rocky in a trap set by animal control officers. The bobcat is back at Popcorn Park Zoo in Lacey Township, where Rocky was taken after escaping from owner Ginny Fine’s home in July.

A state judge warned Fine a little more than a month ago that her pet would be removed from her home permanently if he got out again.

Fine was issued another summons over the escape. She is due in court Dec. 5 for the latest charge.
