A Bobcat Is a Type of Cat 

Friday, December 14th, 2012

In Bangor, Maine1, after hitting a cat with her car, a woman attempted to rescue it.

Police said the woman believed the cat was seriously injured or dead and placed it in her van just after midnight Wednesday morning. But while she was driving the cat became alert and she realized it was a bobcat.

I’m alternating between cracking up at the terrifying idea of a bobcat waking up inside your car while you drive and being curious as to how exactly you identify the animal as a bobcat at that point.


  1. Bangor? I just met her! Also, it’s actually pronounced Bang-ore, not Bang-er. ↩︎
