To help bring awareness to the public, wildlife rehabilitation specialist Kathie Schroeder shows off a bobcat at the Western National Parks Association in Oro Valley last Wednesday afternoon. She explained how bobcats, like the 19-pounder in front of her, could easily jump a 12-foot fence from a standstill. She wanted people to understand how bobcats can be observed from a distance, but should never be approached. In an effort to identify the cats, she is asking for pictures of bobcats, with the date and location of where the photograph was taken, to be emailed to wild.cat.research@gmail.com.
