Those things are fur-covered chainsaws.

This. Seriously, how the hell did they pin that thing down? I am honestly curious.


Ironically, they used one of these:

Raj: Hey, don't bag on Sandra Bullock! You think it makes you look cultured, but you just come off as bitter.


LOL...I'm confident you are correct about the name of the movie. Still..it and the first Alien movie are to two scariest I've ever watched.

Reminds me...I was wondering if it was merely really, REALLY hungry...and not rabid.

I have serious reservations about whether I would survive a bobcat attack if I wandered into my garage and one leaped into my face.

First off, I have way too much stuff in my garage, and when it leaps at me, it would probably cause a cascade of various garage detritus, and I'd probably go ass over teakettles into a collection of rakes and ladders and shovels and then become trapped between the snowblower and the generator.

The stuff I land in would probably do more damage than the bobcat.... and then I'd be rolling around a pile of equipment and machinery with a bobcat attached to me.

I should seriously clean my garage in case the rest of this bobcat's family wanders 15 miles east.

He should have a Life is Good t-shirt made that shows him being mauled by a bobcat.

Oh yeah, I just remembered the reason UK's mascot is the Wildcat is because in 1783, a guy, John McKinney, was teaching in a one-room schoolhouse in Lexington when a wildcat burst in. IIRC, he fought it with a broom and was victorious, although he got bitten.

No, I found an account it was better than I remembered. It ran in and bit him, and he couldn't get its fangs out of his side, so he strangled it with his bare hands.

Zafler: bim1154: What a bobcat looks like in my brother's living room.

[i106.photobucket.com image 800x600]

Looks like a cross between a regular house cat and a bobcat. If so, then the extra size of the cat I took in 10 years ago is now explained. Vet said he didn't conform body-wise to standard house cats.


It's full blooded and young in this image. He had it for about 10 years. It pretty much didn't want anything to do with anyone but my brother. Even so, he got his fair share of scratches at times.

Contents Under Pressure: There's this thing on every garage. It's called a door. You make sure it's shut when you are not moving something in or out of the garage. Before shutting it, you make sure it's clear of your neighbors' kids or house cats.

Leave the garage door open unattended and be prepared for surprises.


(semi) related CSB:
Dad always left the windows down when the car was in the garage to "vent it out." He inadvertently left the garage door open one night. The next morning he's headed out to start his pre-dawn commute and finds a pissed-off owl on the passenger floor board. So he grabbed by T-Ball bat and

stuck it in the car like a perch for the owl, who happily jumped on, then took off with a single flap of its wings and disappeared silently into that dark morning.

I have an ordinary housecat who is the best companion imaginable, except on very rare occasions when he flips out.  I think he's kitty schizoid or something.  This is only when he's let out of the house, apparently (we don't let him out any more).  The last time it happened, I had to go put on a heavy coat and gloves to pick him up; he was a crazed, feral animal at that point, terrified and apparently unable to recognize who I was.  He nailed me, right through the glove, sank a fang right into my thumb down to the bone.  Fortunately, at that point, he stopped biting, although he was still hissing and writhing for all he was worth.

I sure as hell would not want to think about dealing with a cat twice his size.  Your brother had better hope that cat doesn't have any psychotic episodes.

I have a cat who was declawed before we got her, so she learned to bite. She's also blind in one eye and easily startled when approached on that side. Last time I took her to the vet, I told the vet tech all this and suggested repeatedly that she muzzle her, as they usually do at the vet. She said she'd be fine. She promptly tried to give the cat a shot on her blind side. Before I realized what was happening, she was bleeding. She had to go to the hospital and my cat had to be quarantined for ten days.

The cat was feral and basically as crazy as Hannibal Lecter when we got her. She's actually a really sweet cat now, as long as you pay attention to her body language and respect her blind side. (It took about a year for me to figure out she was blind, though. I thought she was just a psycho.)

He was one of those "animal husbandry" types where he had what ever permit or license to take care of wild animals. He's had just about everything at one time or another. The bobcat was nothing but a kitten when it was given over to him. As I said above, he got his fair share of scratches and bites from it, but no more or no less than anything else he had around there in all the years he's done that.

tlchwi02: Jake Havechek: So he's a bobcat fighter and a kinky bastard also?

the whole story was way weirder. saw it on the local news. weird people, the story seemed like a lot of BS. seemed more likely they caught it and then whatever scheme they had cooked up went bad.


Turns out stuffing a bobcat in a FedEx box is a lot harder than that webcomic made it look.

When I was a teenager some friends of mine and I accidentally live trapped a bobcat. Amazing animal. Gorgeous eyes. It emitted this sort of electric energy is the best way I can describe it. We played this game where one of us would try to place a copenhagan can on the cage (hey, you had to know this was a redneck story). Every time the cat would flick the can away right before we could set it down. You wouldn't even see her (?) paw move. Thirty-five years later I'm still surprised we took her back to woods and let her go. We really wanted to skin her, but she was just too cool of an animal to kill.

I'm going back to my nap now. You younguns better not make any noise.


Ahhh...came in here to say the same thing.  1979 Mercury Bobcat, white with red trim along the bottom.  Inexplicable mudflaps.  Installed my own sunroof from one bought from the J.C. Whitney catalog. The car was the prototype for modern-day car subwoofers - two homemade 12" speaker stage monitors shoved into the back, hooked up to a cheap amp and equalizer.   Loudest car in the high school parking lot, thank you very much.

I watched a video this past weekend of a guy with balls of steel...or no brain (depending on your position) pinning a bobcat down with a damn stick to help it out of a trap.

We have a Redbone Coonhound and regular "Critter standoff events" are the norm around here. So far no bites although I did have a raccoon bypass the dog and confront me for a few seconds. I had to check my drawers when I came in the house after that one.

My Redbone "Bella" has delivered, to me: a raccoon, possum, black snake, countless squirrels, bumble bees. I fully expect her to drag a deer onto the porch. If she does, I'm thinking she'll be ready for the big woods.

Sounds about like "Hayley". Her specialty is chipmunks. She gets about 4 or 5 every spring and summer. She definitely has a talent for catching them.
