Bobcat Encounter

You might not be able to see them, but there are two guys in this video. The bobcat didn’t see them, either, which is a testament to the power of camouflage, and the fact that they didn’t move a muscle. The bobcat is a bit startled to realize the guys are right in front of him, then he's confused, then after thinking about it, he decides this party is just too awkward.

According to the original, longer video, Toby and Shad were out hunting coyotes in southeast Oregon when the bobcat found them. This segment was given to the company that sells the camouflage. From the way it looks, you have to imagine the bobcat seeing human faces floating among the foliage, and nothing else. -via reddit

Bobcats are curious. Have been tracked by one. When confronted face-to-face, this is the behavior I have seen. On the other hand, if you run across the legendary long-tailed bobcat, it is likely and adolescent puma and you should keep an eye out for mother instead of staring at the kitten.
