Bobcat attack

At the outskirts of Prescott Valley yesterday a bobcat attacked a 13 year old girl and her mother.

We saw that on the news last night!
Pretty crazy...although I don't agree with them killing it. But I wasn't there so I guess I shouldn't judge.

Brandy - I'd question killing the animal as well, but like you said...

I'm sure this type of thing will continue to happen as their habitat recedes to the ever expanding subdivisions.

My guess would be a rabid cat. These animals don't attack if they are healthy unless they are provoked. If rabies is the case, the death it suffered at the hands of the officers was much less painful than the one it would have suffered from the virus.
Make sure all of your pets are vaccinated.

Yep...just heard on the news the bobcat was rabid...

Jarart - That makes sense.

Brandy - thanks for the update! :)
