West Seattle wildlife: Was that a bobcat?

Two years ago, we reported on two suspected bobcat sightings. This morning, another one. Randy just e-mailed to say:

I think I saw a bobcat this morning at 6:00 AM on 39th and Marine View (Arroyos) on the hill. Pretty cool

They’re more common than you might think, according to the state Fish and Wildlife Department‘s infosheet about bobcats (which includes a photo).

    This is exactly why I keep my 2 cats inside! 

    They may be able to out run a raccoon maybe a coyote but another “cat” I think not!

    Whoa, that would be amazing, a bobcat. Wonder whatever happened to Westley and to that bear who was sighted above Mee Kwa Mooks? (Hopefully they didn’t meet…)

Sorry, comment time is over.
