Here are some charming photos of a bobcat in the yard of Laurel’s parent’s house. The Twitter hashtag is #yyc which I believe refers to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The photo credits go to V. Galloway. Laurel’s Twitter page.
It is great to see a bobcat feeling secure enough to rest in someone’s yard. Is she safe? Laurel believes so in saying the following on Twitter:
“Trust me – it’s in a very well-protected area. It’s comfortable & safe. As it should be….Fish & Wildlife were there this morning & would have removed it if it were unhealthy or a danger….Our police force has strict policies about shooting wild animals within a very large, busy city.
This is probably an example of the urbanisation of the bobcat because humans have created settlements on its territory.
Linda Hall made a wise comment on Twitter:
“Beautiful animal. Glad no one panicked and called animal control.”
I suppose it is best to keep quiet about a wild cat in a backyard incase some idiot wants to kill her for the fun of it but, that said, all seems to be okay despite a discussion on Twitter.
Indeed, thanks for sharing.
