082313 Bobcats in New Hampshire at Gilmanton Year-Round Library August 27 (165)

GILMANTON — Candice Rogers, of NH Fish and Game, will talk about New Hampshire's own wildcat, the elusive bobcat, on Tuesday, August 27, at 6 p.m. at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library.
Imagine you are taking a quiet walk at dusk. Enjoy the scenery, the sounds, the smells. When all of sudden you see an animal out of the corner of your eye, leaping up a pile of rocks. You're pretty sure you just saw a cat, but it was just so big! Don't second guess yourself. The bobcat is taking New Hampshire back.

After the outlawing of hunting the species in 1989 the bobcats have been increasing their numbers in the Granite State.

The presentation is free and open to the public. The Library is on NH Route 140 opposite the Gilmanton School in Gilmanton Iron Works.
