    If it was really rabid (as in it has Rabis) then I hope he got his injections and won’t die because of it

    a little tiny ass bobcat, looks like a large house cat. curious as why such a tiny cat would attack people. probably smelled like cat nip.

    One thing Seth probably should have mentioned was that the bobcat had rabies. It was a good thing that the man shot it.

    My husband is a doer, like this guy. An animal ran down the street one day tried to attack my son and myself.I yelled out my husbands name and within seconds he was outside and charged the beast. The animal backed down and then turned back around to attacked again. Husband did not hesitate, he picked up the nearest Boulder in the yard and threw it at the animal. The owner ran down the street and tried to pull the animal back: it turned on the owner and came back at us. My husband picked up another stone up (these were large) and this time made sure it made contact with the animals about. It left this time in a honorable retreat with a few turn around sand barking, but still just leaving. Bless those doers everywhere.

    That moment when you realize that you can SEE THE BOBCAT COMING — right after the guy says good morning to the jogger, before he says he needs to wash his car, you can see the bobcat run towards them from across the street in the upper left corner of the video… like, you guys, it was stalking them.
