Bobcat “The Native Cat

by Jennifer Kuroda

Bobcats, named for their short, bobbed tail, are about twice the size of a common house cat. They use their keen sight and hearing to hunt rabbits, squirrels, small rodents and some birds. They are mostly nocturnal, reclusive animals that prefer forested or wooded areas. Once hunted almost to extinction in the Midwest, bobcats have been making a comeback over the past 40 years. Jennifer Kuroda, founder of the Illinois Bobcat Foundation, will present this program. In this talk, Jennifer will cover every facet of the elusive cats, including history, biology, predator perception and management. She will also include information about the ongoing bobcat population study by Dr. Chris Jacques at Western Illinois University.
