    well we trapped a bobcat yesterday. Not sure if he was the culprit from our Monday chicken massacre. We lost 5 hens a our roo on Monday and 10 + bids over the past couple weeks. There are racoon tracks around too so hopefully we get one in the trap soon. Kathy

    Good looking one. I'd be headed to the taxidermist. He won't be chicken dining anymore!!

    You should be very proud. I'm sure that bobcat was a terrorist.

    Beautiful animal! But I guess if you had to kill it, not too much of a choice there...

    Can you post a "Graphic" warning in the title? I was expecting to see a beautiful bobcat in a cage (you used the word "caught"). UGH.

    I agree-- I understand but I dont want to see it. We are all animal lovers here....some are sensitive to that stuff and are just here to talk about our chickens.

    Im glad your girls are safe though.
