Bobcat Pictured Dragging Shark Out The Ocean
Is this picture real or fake?? That might be your reaction when you see a photo of a bobcat dragging a 4-foot-shark from the water.
Via WPTV reports:
YouReporter John Bailey sent the picture to us which he said he took at Sebastian Inlet State Park.
He claims the cat leaped into the water, caught the shark, and dragged it to shore.
The photographer thinks he ended up getting too close and may have caused the cat to drop the shark and run off into the forest.
Wildlife experts say it’s not uncommon for bobcats to be wandering Florida beaches.
They say it’s possible the cat is a female and might have been trying to catch food for its babies.
“My first reaction was amazement that somebody actually took that picture because bobcats are generally very, very reclusive. You don’t really see them out and about too often,” said Busch Wildlife Sanctuary Animal Care Director Amy Kight.
Bobcats are normally not considered aggressive.
