Bobcats a report by: Bella Sorge Causes of population decrease Other Information The End! Sources Human Impact Hunting Population Numbers Habitat Loss About the Bobcat What is its diet? What does it look like? Basic Information The bobcat is a small cat that is about double the size of a domestic or house cat. Its coat ranges in color
from brown to gray with black or brown spots on the coat. The bobcat has a whiskered faceblack tufted ears. The bobcat has black bars on its forelegs and a short, stubby tail with a black tip. Bobcats prefer rabbits but, will also eat:
~ rodents
~ birds
~ reptiles
~ insects
~ poultry
~ domestic cats
And will sometimes take on larger prey such as:
~ white-tailed deer
~pronghorn antelope
Or carrion if not spoiled Bobcats are hunted for sport and fur. They are only endangered in three states; Ohio, Indiana, and New Jersey.
Hunting and trading is allowed in other states but the numbers are still closely watched. In Mexico, bobcats are killed by farmers for allegedly killing sheep.
Hunting and trapping is still allowed throughout the rest of its habitat. The total population of wild bobcats is about 725,000 to
1,020,000. Some abiotic factors that effect the bobcat population are:
~ weather
~ habitat destruction
~ loss of habitat
~ water availability
Some biotic factors that effect the bobcat population are:
~ decrease of prey
~ predators
~ hunting

It is part of the cat family, Felidae. It ranges from southern Canada to southern Mexico and most of the United States. Bobcats are hunted and their pelts are sold for different amounts of money depending on size, color, thickness, and brightness of spots. In some states bobcats are endangered and can not be hunted.

If the bobcat disappeared all the organisms it eats would overpopulate causing an imbalance in the food chain at Monongahela National Forest. The bobcats habitat is not
effected by humans but, the
bobcat is sometimes found
in backyards. The bobcat will only
enter backyards if it can not find a
suitable habitat.
