You’d be tempted to pet the kittens by the pool, but look carefully, because mama is always watching. It’s true that bobcats are relatively small wildcats, and would normally avoid humans rather than engaging in violence, but a mother guarding her cubs will do anything to protect them. Redditor NotSure2505 posted this photo taken yesterday at a fenced-in yard in Scottsdale, Arizona. Don’t see the mother? You can enlarge the photo at imgur. He also posted some earlier photos of a bobcat on his fence and a coyote at his child’s school.
