Need to see about getting a rabies vaccination for myself before doing that, though, just to cover my bases. We're having a rabies outbreak here. Hrmmmm.
Bobcat are one of the few predators you can consistently catch in cage traps. They will enter tall, narrow cages, thinking it will protect them from larger predators like coyotes.

Top prices paid for prime cats, with large spotted bellies, have reached $1,000 at fur auctions over the last three years.
