Bobcat Killed By a Car in Sussex County

I typically don't post items on this blog that are so far afield, but this seemed noteworthy:

Jana Brusich, a friend of this blog, writes:

A Bobcat -- and endangered species in New Jersey -- was fatally hit by a car on State Highway 206 in Sussex early Wednesday afternoon. There was no radio transmitter collar on the Bobcat.

I've spent much time out in the field photographing wildlife, and I have never seen a Bobcat in the wild.  Even in death, this Bobcat provided me conformation that they still do thrive in NJ.

(Thanks, Jana.)

A photo of the dead Bobcat follows.  (You'll have to scroll down; do not want anyone to see it by accident....)
