Bobcat Sighting | June 1, 2020

There have been reports of sightings of a bobcat wearing a tracking collar in Portland.  CT DEEP is aware and tracking her movements.  This particular bobcat is a mom and has babies.  Please do not approach them and do not cause them harm, as she is hunting to feed her cubs.  Bobcats tend to be shy and avoid humans.

Should you encounter a bobcat, you should keep as much distance between you and the animal as possible.  Protect your children and pets by never leaving them unattended.  When possible, make a lot of noise (banging on pans/pots, blowing an air horn).
