Trapping of a Rare Bobcat

Black Bobcat

Black Bobcat

I am writing this Blog in regards to a rare black bobcat being snared near Cocagne NB on Christmas day.I am a photographer and a person who cares for the well being of wild animals in the world and its hard to see this and not say anything.Heres a guy holding this beautiful rare cat like its a prized possession and its perfectly legal and studies show there has only been one other black bobcat caught in Canada and only 12 ever recorded in North America.On Facebook I can see how most people are not happy that this cat was snared and I feel the same way as it leads me to a lot of questions about trapping.Bobcats and Lynx in New Brunswick are trapped every year and there are very low numbers of Lynx and Bobcats in the province.
