    Shooting Cat is the subject of Research in a Facebook Group: If anyone has information about Shooting Cat or his descendants please contact the Group on Facebook known as Anna Laura Shooting Cat. On the SIRIS web site there is a photo of Shooting Cat where is tagged "White Man". The background setting is the same setting as it is for the photo of "Medicine Bull". One caption said the photos were taken at the St. Louis Exposition of 1904; and, the other caption indicated that the photos were taken in Washington, D.C. when Chief Spotted Tail was there in 1880. If anyone knows the true facts about these photos please post them here or on the Facebook Group mentioned above.
