A little over two years ago, Lola and I came across a bobcat while walking our normal hiking route. The cat didn’t hang around very long and Lola became quite excited, but that was the end of it.
A few days ago we were walking the route again, and Lola began barking in the exact spot where the cat had been hiding on the previous encounter. I immediately reached for my iPhone and you can see for yourself what happened. This is a testimony to the fact that wild animals have places where they hang out repeatedly over time. This cat was probably laying in the same spot as on the previous encounter over two years prior.
Although Lola probably outweighed the cat by 25-30 pounds, the cat was the taller of the two and seemed to have little fear of the dog.
