A Bobcat Ate My Gutpile
By Phil Bourjaily
Facebook fan Kyle Douglass sent us this clip, saying "I captured this video in northern Idaho of a bobcat eating my deer after I had cleaned it. I'm not much of a cat person but it was the strangest thing having this bobcat hang around me for a couple hours while I cleaned my deer. I was wondering if you would like to share the video for me?"
Yes, Kyle, we would like to share your video. Thank you for sending it, and thank you for having the nerve to put your camera right into a bobcat's face, which is a decision we might not have made ourselves. Bobcats are cute and not very big, but they are still wild animals with teeth and claws. We're glad both of you survived the filming unscathed.
