    you saw it so you want to kill it?

    they are pretty uncommon, why kill them?

    +1. Don't really see the reason to shoot them. You can't eat 'em. They aren't going to bother you either.

    I don't know; tell us more about it like where you spotted it.
    If it a threat close to your kids animals etc... cap his ass.

    The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny, and it is useless for the innocent to try by reasoning to get justice, when the oppressor intends to be unjust.

    BOBCAT (Experimental Year Round Season)
    No person other than the holder of a valid big game license may take or possess bobcat, EXCEPT licensed trappers
    who may take or possess bobcat during the open trapping season. A big game licensee shall only take bobcat during
    the time period from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset with approved archery equipment,
    shotgun, primitive firearm, or centerfire firearm. A big game licensee shall not take more than one bobcat per
    calendar year. This regulation applies only to property that is privately owned, state wildlife management areas,
    and the Bayou des Ourses, Bodcau, Bonnet Carre, Indian Bayou, Loggy Bayou and Soda Lake tracts owned
    by the Corps of Engineers, but does not apply to state wildlife refuges, the Kisatchie National Forest, or other
    federally owned refuges and lands. On state wildlife management areas the take of bobcat is restricted to those
    open seasons on the WMAs which require the respective legal weapons noted abov

    did your chickens have any blood left? cause you may be dealing with this:

    this was on the history channel's monster quest. your chickens made me think of it.

    their hairless dogs are easy to kill but the beast itself may be a different story. there are no reports of these thing in louisiana yet but they are in texas.

    I think bobcats look pretty cool near the mantle if someone does a good taxidermy job on it.

    A woman I work with caught a Red Fox last night in a trap. She thinks it's been getting her cats.

    Unlikely unless they are kittens, unless its 2 or more Foxes, they hunt cats in groups usually.

    I have 3 cats, they have fought/stood toe to toe with Foxes a number of times...they team up on the Foxes, dogs, cats, and whatever else gives them crap usually.

    When I see a Fox and a Cat in the street I don't even bother going outside anymore, I just watch. They usually make the mistake of picking on Toby anyway, my insane grey tabby that likes to fight 50+lb dogs.

    2+ Foxes or Fox vs Kittens...yeah its getting them. Full grown cats, possible but unlikely.

    They have alot of Coyotes in around her house out in Ethel, I told her it was more likely that they got her cats or a neighbor that doesn't like all her cats.

    Dude you just never know around here. I was talking to a guy who was walking his Rotty, Toby walks up to him & the dog, being sweet, and the Rott makes the mistake of trying to pounce on him...he jumped on that dogs face and put 4 teeth and 20 claws in it faster than the dog could blink...it was freakin beautiful!

    2 days later a guy was walking his Black Lab mutt in front of my house...he decides to let his dog taunt Toby...rofl...Toby dove on top of him and started tearing into him, the dog flung Toby into some nearby bushes and he charged out after the dog and latched on to his face, by this time I was leaping over the shrubs in my front yard, the dogs owner was screaming and cursing Toby, who was laying there all innocent like, while the dog whimpered and cried, sprawled out on the ground, next to his owner. I went to get Toby b/c I was nervous that the dogs owner would try to hurt him.

    Toby whipped that dogs ass from my driveway, 20ft down the sidewalk, to my neighbors driveway. It was too freakin funny, he got lots of love for that.

    What kind of asshole lets their dog go after someones cat while the cat is in its own driveway? I'd shoot that mother****er just as soon as look at it, the dog I mean. I figured Toby smacking down his dog was better than me smacking the owner down, the prick.

    Charlie you are 100% right on that, its Coyotes or a Neighbor, both will make short work of a cat.

    I guess they are happily married because if not he might have slipped and took a head shot.

    Crazy shit there.

    Well she caught a Red Fox in her trap. She thinks that's what got the cats. I bet the fox was going to eat the cat food she leaves out. I still vote Coyote.
