New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission’s Decision to Start Hunting the Bobcat Has Been Blocked — 7 Comments

  1. This defies belief!! Bobcats are beneficial. Just don’t feed any wild animal that you aren’t willing to live with no matter how much it raises hell in your home!!

    They hunt and kill rats and other far more troubling vermin than themselves. A few brave souls even keep them or their hybrids as pets.

    We have a few Bobcats at our site where I work as an armed guard. They are shy and stay much further away from people than the skunks or raccoons do.

    Still, some people think that we are one tuna sandwich away from disaster!!

    • Thank you for commenting. I agree with you that hunting bobcats in New Hampshire is crazy and I hope that the authorities come to their senses. Your comment is welcome.

  2. Thank you for this update @ the opposition to Bobcat hunting in New Hampshire. though just a stalemate , this decision
    May result in a bipartisan vote that will pan out for equality
    [in favor of all cats and the people who love them.]

    I do have one question> what in the world were those trigger happy gun-loaders planning to do with the carcasses? surely nothing worth a killing. as for culling , I don’t think you can use this word when the count is already sparse.

    • They just enjoy killing. It is as simple as that. It is a primeval desire which is still inside some humans. It goes back to caveman when killing was necessary for survival. The sport hunters are 21st century people with parts of their brain locked into life 50,000 years ago. That’s my take on it.

  3. Let’s hope the idiots that “run”? the government stop and think(?) about what the damage to the environment is. Not to mention that so many species have been exterminated or are on the way to being exterminated because of government’s greed and stupidity.

    • Yes, Susan. Agreed. There needs to be more concern about wildlife and less concern about supporting sport hunting and trapping. There is no place for these activities in 21st century USA in my view.
