    Neat picture! How do you let him go without getting clawed or bit up? He looks pretty angry!

    This may show my ignorance for trapping laws but is it really ok to set traps without having a permit of some sort? Also, what about the health of the animal? Does the trap break their leg? Plus, being in a trap has got to expose the animal to a lot of stress that may hinder their survival.

    I'm not jumping on anyone but I'd sure like to know.

    let me clear this up a little i have a legal fur takers permit but the great state of pa has a draw system for bobcats and i dont have one this year but i can still trap other things that are legal,fox,coyote, ect no the trap does not break there leg!!!!! like alot of people think the cat was fine i have caught and let go lots of them unharmed!!! i have to so they can kill more turkeys and fawns.

    I confused at first to, thinking you were from MO. That sure stinks about the no permit thing. That is a great looking cat. Cool pictures.

    This has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard of along with the Dr. Alt deer management plan. I think the PGC needs to take a serious look at what it is doing.

    Still a nice cat though.
