bobcats

AUGUSTA, Maine - Maine wildlife regulators are working with residents about the way the state manages its furbearing animal species.

STOW, Maine - Wardens in Maine say they are searching for a bobcat that attacked a 17-year-old boy and his father.
 
The Plowden family first encountered the animal Wednesday night in their backyard in Stow. Carolynn Plowden tells the Sun-Journal that the large cat showed no fear and was acting strangely by walking all around the yard and rolling around.
 
Her husband John and son Justin went outside to confirm the animal was not a protected lynx when the bobcat suddenly lunged and bit Justin Plowden's face.
 

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold public hearings on proposed rules to have a bobcat hunting and trapping season for the first time in more than two decades.
