Pa. Game Commission: Big cat attack a hoax

QUARRYVILLE, Pa. (AP) - October 20, 2008 The agency said Monday that state police crime lab tests showed a supposed blood trail wasn't blood. A search turned up no evidence of mountain lion hair, feces or tracks in the vicinity.

A knife the man says he used to fight with the animal near his Quarryville farm has deer hair on it. Further tests are being done on blood on the knife.

There hasn't been a confirmed sighting of a wild mountain lion in Pennsylvania for more than a century.
