Releasing a Trapped Bobcat?
Don’t do it this way
The method you see here are not gold standard of what you should do, this video is bordering on the “ultimate” of what you should absolutely NOT do if you find yourself in this situation.
The video below was uploaded to YouTube by Leo Topaz, and shows what appears to be the husband of the camera holder attempting to release a bobcat. Not much is known about where this video was shot, and if this was their trap or if they were illegally tampering with another trapper’s set, but one thing is for sure, the guy who joins the bobcat release party right at the end has never seen what a bobcat can do when it’s angry.
Take a look at this video to see how NOT to release a trapped bobcat.
That was a serious show, wasn’t it? Obviously they need to invest in a better way to open that trap, and stay away from other people’s property if it isn’t their own, but all in all an interesting video documenting a rarely seen event.
