Reported in the Midcontinental Journal of Archaeology 2015, a bobcat appears to have been buried in a human-like, loving, and bejeweled fashion.

The bobcat grave was discovered in Illinois, and dates back to somewhere around the year 25.

The animal burial is considered rare, as the internment was similar to human burials of the time, and the only known bobcat burial in archeological records.
