After a fruitful bout of hunting, mama bobcat emerges from the reeds with a cotton rat for her baby. I am so grateful and humbled to have spent so much time in the company of these mysterious creatures! In addition to their beauty and mysterious nature, bobcats are magnificent pest control! One cat will consume many rodents in a single day. Bobcats are even known to consume rattlesnakes from time-to-time.
We need these beautiful creatures to maintain healthy ecosystems and prevent rodent-born diseases. Please refrain from hunting or trapping, and never use rodent poison, as it will kill these beautiful creatures, as well as hawks and owls. Tucson, AZ.
