Default Big Tom mt lion near Abilene

I saw whatí appears to be a legitimate big cat killed just south of Abilene . Apparently Rustic Oakes Taxidermy posted it on Facebook. My friend near there has confirmed the account. Picture had a game warden in it . 150 lb tom called in with a fox pro is the word. Iíll try to post a picture
