Missing Lynx

Headline: Bobcat Survives Arrow Shot Through Head

The arrow was likely shot by a hunter, said state Department of Fish and Game warden Grant Oggel.

Somebody give that genius a raise! Who else could it have been? Cupid? Injuns? Legolas? Of course it was a hunter.

Apparently, that cat lived up to its name enough to survive but still wasn’t good enough not to get nailed.

I sympathize with this its difficult existence, while other species have it a helluva lot easier, the Bobcat, at a minimum, has to be totally exhausted. Mountain Lions only have to lie around. Wildcats get to go to all of the parties. What do Bobcats get?

All a Bobcat is left with is a life full of constant weaving and zigzagging as if they were anticipating that knockout punch from an unseen opponent, relentlessly moving and ducking and performing these evasive maneuvers just trying to get by.

Think about it, it must take an hour for it to move 20 feet with all that carrying on. (insert Wile E. Coyote sound effects here) Poor thing. I wonder how long it took the doctor to remove the arrow:
Dr: Keep. Your. Head. Still!
Bobby: I can’t. I’m a freakin' bobcat!!
Too bad the animals’ last name wasn’t Goldwait...then I wouldn't feel so bad.

I wonder if it turned out to be a gag kind like Steve Martin used to wear.

When he said "it was likely shot by a hunter" he was answering a question from the reporter. The question was, "Who do you think shot the bobcat?"
Perhaps before you use the "Genius" sarcasm you should try to research the entire story, as I did. He (the Game Warden) also went on to discuss that many people do not realize there is a hunting season for bobcats in Ventura Ca.
