We document a hunting record of a rare felid, Marbled Cat Pardofelis marmorata in Hija Village at the Ziro Valley, Lower Subansiri District of Arunachal Pradesh. The ecological knowledge on marbled cats is limited in this part of the geographic range of this species. However, the threats like the hunting directly impact the marbled cat populations. Initiatives to study the impact of the hunting practices and assessing the sustainability of these hunting practices on this species are required.
