Wyoming Bobcat Caught Only With a Camera

We are in awe of such amazing images of a leaping Wyoming bobcat, caught with a camera – a non-consumptive and valuable appreciation of our wildlife.

As we enjoy this spectacular image of a wild bobcat, Wyoming cats living outside Yellowstone boundaries are being trapped in subfreezing temperatures and hunted with dogs to sell their fur for the fashion industry in the U.S., Russia, and China. They can also be sold to breeders.

Bobcat trappers are required to present their pelts for mandatory tagging in accordance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITIES).

Why are our furbearing animals being commercialized?

Thank you Horsefeathers Photography and Bradley Orsted for sharing images that most of us will never witness in the wild!
