And a bobcat will tear you a new ass if they feel threatened.

City people...

Bobcat-around 23-30 lbs
Mountain Lion(no matter the name)- around 100 lbs.

But yes, never corner either.

Lots of skinny wild cats venturing into human civilization lately. Can't be much to eat in the woods.

How do you know it's a bobcat?  Maybe that chair is from the Shaquille O'Neal patio set.

My 8 pound female kitty can do a number on me if she's pissed off.

Cats have lots of pointy ends.

A rabid bobcat is nothing but an angry woman with longer nails, more hands and sharper teeth It will fark you up.

with that grenade launcher mounted on it it definitely looks more like a mountain lion.

I'm glad we got this out of the way right off the bat. Size sorta matters, but it's a wild animal with weapons in its feet and mouth that it won't hesitate to use.

/You know what the difference between "wild" and "domestic" is? Generations of selective breeding.

"The Taylor's nanny "

That just about sums it up right there. Clueless rich folks build home in the middle of "nature". Freaks out when nature hangs out.
This is why our biosphere is doomed.

Yes a bobcat will fark your shiat up if it feels threatened, it will probably even eat your smaller pets and rape your favorite cat to finish out the day.  A bobcat however is highly unlikely snatch up your toddler and run off into the woods.

A cougar will do all the above, and possibly kill you in your garden if it gets desperate enough to eat.  Mountain lions and other big cats are one of the many many reasons we humans started keeping dogs as pets.

Got a picture of a bobcat from a buddy of mines ranch laying around, lemme see if I can dig it up

I would not want to be stuck alone with this guy angry and in a small room without a gun.  Beautiful sucker though.

How exactly is a human going to threaten an animal that can run 3 times faster than them and leap over 8 foot walls? Wild cats deal with threats mainly by not being seen, but if they are seen and feel threatened they simply disappear. There are only extremely rare and isolated cases where one might be starved enough to attack a human.

The first line of the article:

SAN ANTONIO -- Some San Antonio families are forbidding their children to play in their yards out of fear of a mountain lion on the loose.

Texas literacy at work?

Technically, neither would be a big cat.  Both have fully ossified hyoid bones, making them small cats.

/The best kind of correct

...and after their dead dog was unearthed from its grave.Mountain lions bury the dogs after they're done eating? And the cat went missing too? Sounds like sicko neighbor to me.

Yeah, that's a residential area.  Hell, I live in the middle of the city and we have bobcats roaming the alleys between houses.  A few cats are missing lately, and some dogs, and a few dozen chickens.    Yes, some folks have chicken coops in their yard.

A house cat can cause serious bodily harm.  Claws are claws.

At least we have this helpful piece of information:

"It cleared a fence higher than this,"

WOW I hear 'this' is pretty high.

Was sitting by the fire pit with my dad and he suddenly leaped to his feet and took a defensive posture. He had mistaken the neighbor's small housecat for a cougar. He thought it was far away when it was in fact it was only ten feet away. I'm still laughing my ass off.

"The Taylor family built their deck to enjoy the scenery, but they didn't expect predators to crash the party. "

So you are saying they did not build it for Mountain Lions then?  Well, that adds a new angle to the story.
