We brought the snow geese we killed on Sunday back with us and processed them on Monday. I took the leftovers to the farm and dumped them out with some rotted deer remains I'd been "curing" for trapping bait. Several videos of coons, grinners and red-tailed hawks, one video of melanistic coyote, and a handful of this bobcat and coyote in the frame together. The nature lover in me thinks this is awesome. The deer/game manager in me wants them both dead!

I just realized that it only uploaded 9 seconds of the 30 second video. The yote made another pass and the bobcat postured even more. Based on the interval between pics, the bobcat held down the pile for 15 minutes at least, all the while holding the yote at bay.

Whole lotta whoop-ass in a cat that big. Mine would mess you up....that one in the video is even bigger!
Cat's can get down right nasty when they want and need to. You have 2 sets of sharp ass claws that can hook in and add to that a mean set of jaws that can lay you wide open. Cat's are just bad asses lol. Hate them but I sure do respect them.

Cats kill shit for fun...I can’t think of another animal that does that out of instinct.

“Oh look a beautiful bird...I must kill it”

“Oh look my owners shoes...barf”

“Oh look a clean car...I must walk on it”

Very neat video... I'm thinking that cat would have laid some whoop-ass on that dog.... Man I had a pic of a bobcat out in Illinois that you would be amazed at... Thing was freaking huge... Only copy I had of pic is on photobucket....
