"A Massachusetts man and his nephew were attacked by a bobcat that had slipped into the man's garage before they captured and shot the 30-pound animal."

In Massachusetts he’ll serve life for that.
One of those souped up bobcats, called a lynx.
Shoot this thang
"Jest shoot up here amongst us! One of us has to have some relief!
I think the Bobcat was eating Skittles -—
Good thing we have the Second Amendment. It’s for personal defense, you know.
I was HUNGRY, man!!!
Is the bobcat a Kennedy ?
When I was a kid my Uncle actually had this happen to him ...
There was a Bobcat in the Garage, he just closed the door and invited us all over to look at it. It was perched on top of his Step Ladder and during our BBQ he would take each of us to the Garage door ... open it up with a little fanfare and we could look at the Bobcat... when the get together was over he just left the door open and the Bobcat went about it’s business, most likely avoiding my Uncles property.
It isn’t all that fantastic for grownups but as an 8 year old I thought it was awesome.
Now to me they are just Vermin that kill my Chickens and I treat them as such.
A Bobcat? In Massachusetts?
“Quick, Reggie, call the police! There’s one of those Robertcats under the limo!”
Knock ‘em out John.
A hunter shot one off my property a few weeks ago. Now I know where some of my chickens went.
*Adventure: Someone, far, far away having a miserable time.
Bobcat attacks Massachusetts man in garage
That must smart...
I was bit pretty bad by a Siamese cat that I had owned for about a half hour (before she bit me) and I was in pain for almost a week afterward. The bad part was that I was in th emiddle of sewing my daughter’s 1st Communion dress, and it required a lot of hand work on it. That cat drove her teeth down through the bones in my hand which reacted by swelling up and stiffening up so that I could no move my fingers. Then the cat ran away.
The doctor said that if I didn’t find that cat by the weekend and place her into quarentine that I’d have to undergo the shots. Luckily, I found her in about 2 days. But I still remember how much my hand hurt. I can’t imagine how much pain that man is in with the bites on his face, as well as on his back and arm. Bigger cat, bigger claws, biggler teeth, dirtier mouth!
Yep..I can hear the story now.
Sonny, did I ever tell you about the time I was attacked by a bobcat? I did? I don’t think so..you don’t know about this time. See...there was this 580 lb ‘cat hidin’ on the garage door opener tracks. When I went out to the garage he dropped down on top of me. I wrestled with him for about an hour and a half and finally choked the life out of him with my bare hands. I drug him thru 10 feet of snow and when it the snow melted in the spring we had a big barbeque.
(The story as my granddad would have told it, lol).
Is he a democrat?
The real story? Slip fall accident on ice.
In the mountains at 7000 ft.
During a blizzard.
While I was alone.
The details get more graphic for some. It was an adventure.
If he complains, I'll yank his man card.
He got a great story out of it, and will live to tell it. Pain is weakness leaving the body.
Ahhh! So you were figure skating on a frozen lake in the mountains? While doing a triple lux I can see how that could happen especially if visibilty was poor during the blizzard.
(no further detail needed. :D)
Well, he might be a mechanic, or a surgeon, or any profession requiring hand work. I just remember every hand stitch I made in that dress. PAINFUL. An ordinary house cat has a lot of nasty bacteria lurking in its claws and mouth. I can’t imagine what’s in a wild cat’s mouth! The cuts and slashes on his face look like they really hurt. I’d give him about 5 years before he can relax telling his story.
He'll be fine. Couple of asprin, a few weeks, and he'll be embellishing his story.
Notice the cuts aren't bandaged for the photo-op..... He's already thinking about it.
It's a guy thing.
Cat Scratch Fever comes to mind!

Also reminds me of the SNL skit with Christopher Walken. The bobcat is mentioned a few times.
What part of the body do you consider “the parlor”?
Headline editors should be thrashed.
My mom back when she was young found a bobcat kitten in the woods ironically at her grandparents house in Massachusetts. She brought it home to NJ, named it Cookie, and raised it as a pet. It grew to the size of the cat in this article. It would eat its food by using its paw to scoop the food to its mouth, this was an indication it wasn’t your ordinary house cat. My mom had the bobcat for its entire natural life, and it did not maim anybody, seriously that is. The bobcat loved my mom and my grandmother, but did not care for guys.
Local MA televison reported that the wife shot the cat with a pistol. Let’s see if that makes the national news.
Maybe the bobcat was rabid but maybe it was just cornered. A cornered wild animal will fight every time.
