Last Wednesday morning in the rural town of Veazie, Maine, a woman accidentally hits what she thinks is an oversized cat. She puts the unconscious animal in her car and drives several miles. A few miles down the road the cat regains consciousness. That’s when the woman realizes it’s no house cat.

She’s riding with a wild bobcat!

The woman immediately pulled over and got out of her car. It jumped out of her vehicle and immediately went underneath it. Several police officers responded and one happened to have a catch pole that you put around the animal’s neck. After removing the bobcat from underneath the car, Game Warden evaluated the animal and confirmed that the strike from the car was fatal. The bobcat was euthanized!

Now Im no wild animal expert, but I think I would know the difference between a house cat and a Bobcat!
