    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

I've never heard of a bob cat really causing any serious injury, never heard of housecats hunting people down (not even wild ones).

    A lot of people like to talk about dangerous animals in the woods but I've never seen animals like cats to be agressive. The only agressive animals would be maybe a pack of dogs, a bear, maybe a mountain lion. I don't think house cats can interbreed with large cats like that. A bobcat is only about twice the size of a large house cat so it is possible but you don't usually see them in the wild, they hide and such.

    I have seen packs of wild dogs. I mean literally dogs that I guess used to be domesticated. They resemble wolves in their behavior.
    There are a number of places in Montanna that breed bobcat/domestic crosses as well as lynx/ domestic crosses. Some beautifull cats, we have a small amount of bobcat mixed in with our cats, these last few generations are not big like the first few though, may have get another hybrid to breed in again. We have a horrible mouse and vole problem here, without cats we would be over run with them.

    As far as my dogs go, they resemble wolves because they are part Timberwolf, but they are great dogs, they will fight anything, living in bear country that is nice to know, the dogs attack while kids run to safety. You lose the dogs but keep your kids.

    As far as wild dogs, well if you have a number of wolf cross dogs to hang out with your kids you haven't much too worry about from them.

    Great post! Makes you think. I never really trusted other peoples dogs, let alone feral ones. Believe we had a bit of trouble with them in rural Illinois as a kid in the mid 70's. Not sure of the economic situation at that time but def. makes me think. Being survival minded I will put this feather in my cap of knowledge. Again thanks for the informative thread.

    Australia is killing MILLIONS of feral cats by airdropping ...


    DEATH FROM ABOVE



    Australia is killing MILLIONS of feral cats by airdropping frozen sausages laced with poison across Outback


    Cats are not native to Oz and kill around 377 million birds, and 649 million reptiles there each year



    AUSTRALIAN officials are killing millions of feral cats by airdropping frozen sausages laced with poison across the Outback.


    The felines die within 15 minutes of ingesting the toxic treats, which are produced at a factory close to Perth.


    But in a bid to kill as many as possible, officials also trap and shoot the creatures.


    The sausages are made with kangaroo meat, chicken fat, herbs, spices and the poison, 1080, the New York Times reported.





    'THEY TASTE GOOD'


    The government launched the killing spree back in 2015, insisting the animals pose a massive threat to rodent species that are already on the brink of extinction.


    Cats are said to be a major threat to at least 27 of Australia's unique species including the big-eared hopping mouse.


    They reportedly kill around 377million birds, and 649million reptiles each year in Australia.


    And they are not native to the country. They first arrived in Oz in the late 1700s, in vessels that were carrying convicts and marines from England.


    With an aim to slaughter at least two million felines by 2020, officials killed 200,000 by 2016, the Royal Melbourne Institute said.


    Dr Dave Algar, who helped develop the poison recipe said he used his cats to test the taste of the sausages before adding the poison to check the flavour.


    He added: "They've got to taste good. They are the cat's last meal."



    'THEY'RE MENACES'


    Hundreds of thousands initially opposed the scheme, including the likes of singer Morrisey and Brigitte Bardot.


    Morissey, from the band The Smiths, blasted the government, claiming "idiots rule the earth" after more than 160,000 signed a petition to save the cats.


    Ms Bardot wrote a letter calling on the government to stop "animal genocide".


    But the species commissioner at the time replied to both of their public calls, claiming many of the country's "delightful creatures" had already been killed by the feral cats.


    Australia's former environment minister Josh Frydenberg the newspaper: "Feral cats are a real menace and a very significant threat to the health of our ecosystem."


    Not everyone opposed the schemes, with many claiming Australia is known for its wildlife, so anything that poses a risk to it should be eliminated.
