VINH LONG (VNS) — A farmer in the southern Vinh Long Province's Vung Liem District yesterday caught a cat that resembled a precious and rare African wildcat.

Thinking that a weasel was hunting his chicken, farmer Luu Thanh Trung, 41, in Quoi Thien, set up a trap. However, the snare caught a cat.

The cat weighs 4kg, has colourful fur and has a temper similar to that of an African wildcat.

Another resident of the province, Nguyen Van Day had caught a similar cat earlier, which was taken to a reservation area in Phu Quoc Island in the southern Kien Giang Province. — VNS
