The battle we have fought, and are still fighting for the forests is a part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong, and we cannot expect to see the end of it.

Bobcats occur across much of the United States, though they are unusual in most of the midwest. Bobcats prey mostly on smaller mammals, but occasionally take deer. Adults can weigh up to thirty pounds.

Young are born in April or May and can stay with their mothers for up to a year. Bobcats are our most common wildcat, and are showing signs of resurgence in some areas, though hunting and cars take a substantial toll.
