Bobcat sighting

Post by big_load » Nov 20 2018 10:25 pm

I couldn't get pics while I was driving, but I got a great look at a bobcat driving back out from Haunted Canyon on FR287. It was up near the mine tailings, bouncing along on the shoulder just ahead of me going uphill.

I've seen a few bobcats in the wild before, but never out in the open like that.

you can't see the bobcat too good in this pic, but here he is lapping up some grease in a drip pan that I use when grilling

edit: I am not 100% sure that it was a bobcat, so I deleted the pic

Hmm, I haven't been able to spot the bobcat. Actually, I haven't been able to spot the picture or a link to it. :(

I was impressed to read that "A bobcat consumes prodigious numbers of prey. It is estimated, for instance, that a female (mama) bobcat and three kittens to which she gave birth (avg.) at the beginning of her second year of life will consume at least 3800 rats, 700 cottontail rabbits, and 3200 mice by the end of her second year."

There is a family of bobcats at Sweetwater Wetlands in Tucson that is very used to being photographed, and I see pics posted almost every day on "backyard wildlife of the southwest" showing what incredible hunters (and eaters) they are! This particular family eats lots and lots of Coots.
Where is the "dislike" button?
