The cat ran out of the garage and bit Mundell's 15-year-old nephew on the arms and back before it was shot dead.

The poor child.  Surely they could have just treated him with rabies medication instead of shooting him.  That seems a little drastic.

/Pssst.  Weasel.  I think they meant they shot the bobcat

Oblio13: mekkab: FTFA:
He, his nephew and his wife _who was not bitten but got the animal's blood on her _ have already started rabies treatments.

THIS IS NOT HOW RABIES WORKS! It is transmitted through saliva!

It can also be spread by brain tissue, and the guy shot it. Perhaps that's how they got it's blood on them. So post-exposure vaccinations would be a wise precaution.

Look, if Mekkab wants to be an asshat and not get a rabies shot when rabid bobcat brain tissue and blood splatters all over him, fine.... it's his body and his decision.

Galactica Actual: Are bobcats native to New England? I had always thought of them as a Pacific Northwestern animal.

They're in Oklahoma. Dad was bowhunting for deer when a bobcat ran towards him. "Bob's" head ended up above our fireplace for about two years, until Mother insisted that it be removed. He had a second, very popular, career above the cash register in our pool hall (NOT "billiard parlor").
