Even though this is not how I would have liked to capture a "wild bobcat" It does represent a beautiful animal in the wild. We live on the outskirts of any real population and this guy comes through our development regularly. He is still as wild as they get and reflects a good diet and healthy environment that he has adopted to very well. There are plenty of birds and wild rabbits here which I don't think he has any trouble putting them on his plate.
The bobcat is a North American mammal of the cat family Felidae, appearing during the Irvingtonian stage of around 1.8 million years ago .

The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semidesert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. It remains in some of its original range, but local populations are vulnerable to extirpation.. more
