Sad, good guy relocating it instead of killing it though

It’s actually illegal to do that

He was allowed. Read the article

I read that he was allowed to kill it, not that he was allowed to relocate it.

That may seem like the farmer would have been free to offer a better deal to the bobcat, though sometimes relocating an animal is killing it, or it's sentencing to death some family of ducks that was already home at the new location.

The owner of The Farm at Carter Hill chose to relocated the bobcat:

>”We put a dog crate at the door, forced it all around by going in and pushing it and it went right inside because it was a pretty big bobcat,” he said.

Bobcat way over his daily bag limit...

Were they sitting?

When will we be able to start hunting them? There’s been lots and lots of sightings of these elusive animals only meaning their population is pretty high. You can hunt them in NY so why not here

Territorial animals rarely survive relocation.

I would wager that surviving being shot at close range has a much lower rate.

That would have been the humane choice.

Certain death vs a road trip

Bobcats are solo animals. Displacing it to another bobcat's territory will end in one of them getting hurt. If he didn't want to kill it he should have let it go and prepared better defenses for his livestock.

I remember to tell that to the two I seen together just last week in plainville
