They are characterized by their short, black tipped tails. The bobcat also has characteristic black-tufted ears and black markings on its legs. They eat rabbits (as this one did) rodents like ground squirrels, wood rats, and pocket gophers.

 Can they hurt humans? I don’t want to find out. But then I fear even house cats. It’s the lineage from saber-toothed tigers that scares me. Leave all wild animals alone.

    I saw a bobcat just east of shuttle stop 6 (Lower Yosemite Falls) on the afternoon of Saturday March 28. After walking along for a while in the vegetation , it disappeared into a pile of brush around a downed tree trunk.

    The day was overcast.
