There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Bobcat vs Mountain lion

The cougar (Puma concolor), also puma, mountain lion, cool cat, or panther, depending on region, is a mammal of the Felidae family, native to the Americas. Close relative to the cheetah and the jaguarundi.

The bobcat resembles other species of the Lynx genus, but is on average the smallest of the four.

German shepherd almost killed by bobcat





Bobcat Kills Labrador In North Ozaukee Co

A coworker told me this yesterday. His friend in the middle of the night a week ago was awakened by his dog barking. Apparently the dog was kept in the garage with door opened a few inches. They made the mistake of opening the door and the dog took off. The dog went missing for a few days but was found dead not to far away with it's throat torn open. The DNR was called in and there conclusion was a bobcat killed the dog. I have lived in Ozaukee Co (southern end) for 50 years and saw my first bobcat 2 years ago in mid March on the county line Rd between OZ and Milw Co's near the Milw River. I did not think a bobcat could take down a full grown dog the size of a Labrador Retriever wow.

Bobcats are slightly larger than house cats. Rare big male bobcat can weigh up to 60 pounds. It's a very big bobcat (Adult female gray wolves in northern Minnesota weigh between 50 and 85 pounds)

Wolf pup (5-6 months old) killed by lynx

Cases of wolves killed by lynx, found by camera trapping and tracking:

wolf litters < 1 months old: 2 certain (2016 and 2017), 2 very plausible (2017)
wolf litters 2-3 months old: 1 very plausible (2016)
adult wolf (mother of litter 2-3 months old): 1 very plausible (2016)
adult wolf (male): 1 plausible (2017)

Below some examples of the responses of wolves to lynx odour, documented by camera traps:

a pack of four wolves approaching a dead tree where a female and a male lynx had marked previously by urinating. Two of the pack members cautiously inspected the tree with their ears flat, a clear sign of fear and/or subordination.

a male wolf was photographed crossing an abandoned forestry bridge with extreme caution (walking very slowly, step by step). Later on the same day when the pictures of the wolf were taken we found fresh tracks revealing why the wolf behaved this way: a lynx walked by shortly before the wolf arrived. The lynx approached the bridge from the ice and walked just outside the detection zone of the camera trap. When the wolf appeared, it hesitated to cross the bridge, inspected the lynx tracks and cautiously walked in its footsteps. There are no pictures of the lynx but its footprints can be seen on the pictures with the wolf, while they were missing in earlier pictures of other animals crossing the bridge.

By camera trapping important marking points of both lynx and wolf we found a consistent pattern. Wolves are usually interested in lynx marking points and inspect them with caution, while lynxes photographed at wolf marking points usually act indifferent and uninterested.
