Bobcat Sightings Galore

Over the last couple of months we've been seeing bobcats fairly frequently.  I myself have seen one, or I think is the same one, on three separate occasions.  Twice I spotted the smaller cat between Benedict Pond and our beaver pond in the afternoon.  The third time the animal casually walked right in front of the window at the office, also in the afternoon, but earlier.  I was lucky enough to get a picture of it, though from a less than desirable angle.  The regularity of this one might be attributed to catching it making its habitual rounds through Aton Forest.  A larger bobcat has also been spotted at least twice on the property in recent times.
