    My driveway backs up to this one. The people who caught this film found a rabbit skin in their yard the next morning. I found a large rat with the head eaten off in my backyard earlier today.

    Some wildlife expert estimated that bad boy to be 34-40 pounds. Only ones I've ever seen were about twice as big as a housecat.

    Bobcats are awesome. I saw a very large one out here a couple years ago that was stalking up on a small group of bighorn sheep. He was no threat to them at all, but stalked up stealthily nonetheless. He had the high ground, on a ledge about 6 feet above them. He got close, but one of the bighorn finally saw him and the group all turned to face him shoulder to shoulder and moved towards him. At that point he decided to get the hell out of there!

    i've raised a few bobcat orphans. providing opportunities for them to learn to hunt is not for the faint of heart.

    Awesome. We see one every now and then in our yard. My wife saw a panther last spring.

    My 2 Man Cats weigh between 17 and 20lbs apiece. By my standards, a 34 - 40 pound bobcat is about twice as big as a housecat.

    I suspect it's the expensive and high quality food. Would not surprise me if Mega-Bob has been partaking of some premium kitty kibble on the side.

    That profile perfectly matches the video, minus the shark.

    if i could be granted a wish in this lifetime, it would be to be able to do good things for animals, particularly the ones who are going extinct.
