I never saw a bobcat, but I would have known if I hit a tiger.

Hopefully the pattern of killing animals is over with CA Dept of Fish and Game. They have carelessly killed so many animals.

Pleased to see that this delightful wild cat has been returned to the wild. Glad that the cat was able to recover. Also relieved to see that these were thinking officers as one sometimes hears about the ones who shoot dogs and other animals and kill them for no reason.

Glad he was returned to the wild and hopefully in a place away from humans where he can live free with plenty of food and water.

Bobcats walk the creek behind my house. The biggest one I've ever seen anywhere was the size of a labrador, not tiger size. Glad he was released. They are amazing animals!
