My friend Steve from Santa Fe sent me these pictures of a couple felines that wandered through his neighbor's courtyard in El Dorado the other evening. I guess they are bobcats but at first I thought they might be lynx. Tails are too long for lynx.
We get bobcat here from time to time but I have never seen them as rangy and possibly so emaciated as this mother and kitten. We have lots of rabbits and squirrels here and I think our bobcats are frankly better fed. Much more compact. Once saw a mom and five kittens in tow, haven't seen another one for a couple years now.
You've got dust on your sensor Steve. Might need to blow it out or have it cleaned. Thanks for sending the great capture along!
