Tag Archives: hunt for gophers

This Bobcat was taking a break from hunting for gophers when Rachel Turner spotted it in front of her house. The cat with the "bobbed" tail and tufted ears appears to be looking right at Rachel.

Bobcats are year round residents of the coast. They are often seen in the daylight hours, especially early mornings. They hunt for many different animals, but here they seem to eat a lot of gophers.

Thanks to Rachel for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
