Stalking From Cover

Stalking From Cover

The Bobcat hunts animals of different sizes, and will adjust its hunting techniques accordingly. For slightly larger animals than rodents, such as rabbits and hares, it will stalk from cover and wait until they come within 20 to 35 feet (6 to 10m) before rushing in to attack. Less commonly it will feed on larger animals such as foxes, minks, skunks, small dogs and house cats. Bobcats are also occasional hunters of livestock and poultry. While larger species such as cattle and horses are not known to be attacked, Bobcats do present a threat to smaller ruminants such as sheep and goats.

This Bobcat was recently photographed in Navajo lands. Bobcats are named "Náshdóíłbái" in the Navajo language and are respected and greatly honored by the Navajo People.
