The bobcat at Hidden Valley campground came ten feet from my two months
pup in october 2011. I became aware of the cat hiding behind a boulder.
He retreated. I thought of throwing a rock or charging as a warning, but then no.
It s his place too.


I was surprised he was in camp in full daylight, but then again saw one
charging through Camp 4 once, in mid morning.

shouldn't this be on the Bob thread?
hahahahaha!

I agree. The bobcats should not be hunted or bothered at all. Coyotes kill way more house cats.

The Bobcats seem mostly interested in rodents

They shouldn't be hunted unless they start fires on live television.

Signed. Thanks for the link.

The bobcats around here live on squirrels and such. The coyotes will take house cats and smaller dogs. Bigger dogs have been seen being taken by Mtn lions. I found the bones of a deer in the brush out back here, but who knows how it met it's fate.

It's raining here right now. The coyotes have figured out that they can chase the deer out of the woods onto the slippery wet paved street, where they lose their footing and go down. One of these days they'll figure out how to chase them into oncoming traffic.

Yesterday was trash day and my stupid neighbors are too thick to get bear-proof trash cans, so there was trash all over the place.

When we bought this place (about 6 years back) I had no idea how much wildlife would be around here. Shortly after we moved in - the furniture was not set up yet - I left all six porch doors into the living room open at night and went to the back of the house. When I came back out there was a bobcat right there in the room. I froze and watched. It looked at me, turned around and raised it's tail to show me it's butt, and walked out casually. I've seen that cat (or perhaps different ones) about twice a year since then.

My favorites are the silver/blue foxes. I always see them in pairs, and they are perfectly groomed. It's like there is a fox beauty salon around here somewhere.

I learned pretty quickly not to leave doors open here. A skunk or bear inside the house would be bad.

I've seen them quite often in Redwood City at Edgewood County Park and Nature Preserve. Saw a really big one sunning himself at Partridge Farm in Castle Rock State Park too. Fat and healthy. Saw a nice one on Page Mill Road in Palo Alto likewise.

All power to the Bobs. They really do keep the rodent population down.

Will sign for sure.

There was a family of 6 that used to hang out at Mike and Mari's. When the whole clan disappeared it was found that a marine from 29 Palms was trapping them and sending the fur to Russia.

Now IF the Marine was "sending the fur to Russia" sans cities tags and permits, he is guilty of the Lacey act, as well as about three different felonies concerning deportation of wildlife.

Yes Locker,, just about EVERYWHERE! From Michigan to GAWGIA,, Kansas to Colo, Cali to Tuscon. They have a season in most states. Trapping is included. I estimate the population just around me to be about fifty or more in small corridor. They are trapped for their fur values and sold at the end of the seasons at market buying sites where they are graded in quality and sold to the highest bidders. Just like in the 1800s. I know some trappers that make 20 K a year doing that. BUT they shouldnt be trapping NEAR any residences , popular trails etc, That is a problem.
