Bobcat With Snake

My friend Tomás shot this with his iPhone while out hiking on a Marin trail. He said that when bobcats get focussed on hunting they don't take much note of humanoids. 

"…As in previous years, bobcats were seemingly more curious than afraid of people. There are several reports of a bobcat walking up on a porch and casually looking at people inside the house. In one instance a bobcat looked calmly into a sliding glass door as a dog barked at it from inside. One bobcat approached within 4 feet of an open garage, watched the homeowner working inside, then continued on its way. One Seabrooker came out to walk her dog and saw a bobcat in the yard. The cat got up, crossed to the other side of the street, then sat and looked back to watch. Bobcats have also been seen beside the roads, watching as cars drive by.…"

A few years ago we were in the little tourist village of Yosemite park and a bobcat walked right in front of us. It was hunting after something and slowly went on its way. I was able to get a pic of it and kept the 5 year old from wanting to go pet the "kitty." Our friend later complained about hiking all day long and didn't see any wildlife. I showed them the pic I took and told them they should have stayed in the village.

this seems totally stupid to me...especially when there was/is a place for these cubs at a conservation wildlife retreat...

Conservation officer suspended for not killing bear cubs

The cubs were orphaned after their mother was destroyed for breaking into a meat freezer inside a mobile home in Port Hardy on Vancouver Island.

After tranquilizing the cubs, Bryce Casavant brought them to a vet to be checked out and then to the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association operated by Robin Campbell.

An online petition has been launched by the association calling on B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak to reinstate Casavant.

Bobcat caught snoozing in Calgary backyard



fairly common in Calgary. Most folks don't worry,

but research says they can take down up to ten times their own weight. That

gives these critters a lot of "strength", so best to be wary.



(keep your cats and dogs inside, they are just snack food for this fellow)
