There are few things more entertaining than nature just being nature. Most of the intense encounters between species happen where we can't see them. This is the exception. It's a trail cam in Missouri that captured what apparently was a wild encounter between a bobcat and some turkeys.
When you see an animal that isn't yours, you have to be careful before you try and pet it. A Missouri woman found this out the hard way when she thought she was petting a kitten which was actually a bobcat in a bad mood.
One of the great things about life in Missouri is your trail cam videos end up being a who's who of the wilderness. That is true of a new trail cam share out of Clay County which is full of deer, possums, bobcats and coyotes.
Imagine this. You're a baby bobcat alone in the woods of Illinois. What do you do? If you're this tiny bobcat, you're thankful you were rescued by Illinois conservation workers and taken to a place that can provide care for you.
When you live in the rural areas of Missouri and have livestock, you know dealing with predators is a reality. That became even more real for a Missouri farmer recently who shared video of a bobcat who made off with one of his chickens.
When you're driving on the backroads in our part of America, you never know what might be waiting around the next corner. For a driver in Pike County, Missouri on Wednesday, that "what" was a bobcat stretched out in the middle of the road.
