Rabid Bobcat Ambushes Arizona Quail Hunters
Outdoor Hub ^ | 10/16/2013 | Daniel Xu

Posted on 10/17/2013 2:48:53 PM PDT by FeliciaCat

Two quail hunters traveling near Prescott Valley, Arizona last Thursday were attacked by a bobcat. The unnamed hunters saw the adult bobcat scamper underneath their vehicle and were met with claws and teeth when they investigated. According to the Prescott Valley Tribune, the men suffered severe lacerations and puncture marks across their chest, arms, and back. The hunter who peeked underneath the car received the brunt of the assault and the cat turned on his companion when the other man tried to remove the animal. One of the hunters eventually shot and killed the bobcat.

Reminds me of the Jerry Clower story about going coon hunting with Marcel Ledbetter.

Jerry sent Marcel up into the tree to get the racoon to climb down. It wasn’t a racoon it was a bobcat, that started tearing strips off of Marcel.

Marcel: “Jerry, shoot this thing!”
Jerry: “I can’t Marcel, I might hit you!”
Marcel: “Shoot up here amongst us! One of us needs some relief!”

A few months ago I was walking in a park early AM here in Carrollton, Tx. and I spotted a bobcat in the grass about 75 yards away.
I pulled out my knife just in case but when it saw me it ran away like a scared putty cat-— just like a spineless RINO when a little Dem resistance is blown their direction.

When I was 10 some neighbors came home from hunting with a kitten they’d found in the woods. I said, “You can’t keep that, it’s a bobcat!” Well, what does a 10 year old know? In a couple of months it had wrecked their house and scratched h*ll out of them. They took it back to the woods. (It probably didn’t do well. But, on the other hand, it was so aggressive maybe it did. Who knows. But these idiots had to buy all new furniture.)

We have a cat that is part desert lynch. His name is Bob. He’s a bit wild but a total coward. Last night he was growling at out granddaughter who likes to shoot him with a water sprayer. Sure didn’t sound like a house cat. He totally loves me but he’s really stupid so I have a hard time loving him.

He’s probably not stupid. He’s probably more wild than domesticated. My cat is so domesticated she has her own credit card. I have to keep her off Amazon.com and eBay.

hmmm. Interesting thought. I do love my part dingo dog, because of his wildness. I have never really loved cats with one exemption. I enjoy having one or two around because they are so beautiful and I respect them. The one I did love was my son’s and he was there for this son in all the ups and downs. He was also incredible smart. He could open doors and turn on faucets. He’s dead now. Buried at our farm. I miss him.

I live in an area where there are lots of woods full of wildlife: racoons, possums, foxes, armadillos, all kinds of critters. The county government takes these big bags of dry dog and cat food, inoculates them with rabies vaccine, and leaves them in the woods for the wild critters to eat. When it rains and the food rots, they just leave more of it out there. It must be working, because I see lots of wild critters and I’ve never seen a rabid one in my life.

That is a beauty!

True story....my husband’s coworker and his wife ended up being adopted by a wild bobcat for a while. During thunderstorms, he would come up on the deck and bang on the door with his paw. They would open the door, he would shoot inside and hide under a bed, and when the storm was over, he’d saunter out and go back to the woods.

Is that really your bobcat? How is it around the house and surely you don’t let it outside do you?

Why would you allow cruelty to your cat? What does that teach your granddaughter? That it's okay to bully and abuse something, or someone smaller than she?

Jails are full of people who started out that way.

Not that I intend to open a full can of stupid (but you did bring up co. gov’t), but wouldn’t it be better/cheaper/easier to setup a covered feeder? I presume, based on your story, they just toss it out ‘as is’....

A rapid Bobcat? Oh sure, they can run pretty fast, but they’re no cheetahs.

I didn’t say that she was allowed. She did it a few times when she was younger. Was told not to but is now amused that he remembers. And a squirt of water at a cat is not abuse or cruelty.

Right now bob thinks he’s being abused because he can’t sleep in the basement but has to sleep in the garage tonight because we have company. Poor bob.

My father used to blow cigar smoke in the cat's face and it would run off. This would send my sister and me into spasms of laughter.
Smokey was an indoor outdoor cat that was not pampered like the indoor cats of today. He was put out during the day and allowed in at night

Thats Lilith found her as a kitten when her mother was hit by a vehicle. She wasn’t to fond of stranger but around the wife and I she was just like any other cat, spoiled rotten. When a 35 lb bobcat jumps on your chest wanting her morning snack you get out of bed.

I tried that once on my first cat that would get up on the kitchen counter. It just sat there with a "what the heck you doing" look on its face.........

Whenever someone threatened me physically I’d tell them “You’d do better to sandpaper a wildcat’s ass in a telephone booth.” Now you know why.
