Seamen and I came across this animal as we were taking a walk. Seamen ran off a little in front of me, and when I caught up to him he was standing face to face with the bobcat. As I arrived the cat took off and pounced away. The Northern Bobcat is a tawny gray in winter, With indistinct dark spotting. The bobcat gets its common name from its stubby, or "bobbed," tail. I t also has slightly tufted ears. The length of the bobcat is about 3 feet and it's tail is 4 to 7 inches long and can way between 14- 29 pounds.
