You could rent a large Havahart trap from the Humane Society and catch him yourself, then call animal services to pick him up. Last time I rented one it was a $75 donation to the Society and I kept it for a week and trapped the 4 Opossums that were in my attic..Good luck !!

I would conduct a stake out in my backyard wearing one of these. Kill him on your own property. Self defense. Get your story straight and do not waver. Good luck.

 

Night vision goggles would be helpful too. There's also a lot of choices in pellet guns with those Co2 canisters. Relatively quiet.

 

I know someone who routinely takes shots at large birds of prey with one of these, not so much to kill but to discourage so he moves on. The element of surprise may discourage him. He's more scared of you.

 

Lighting that is activated by any movement could e useful too.

I'm just kidding, go with BDD's advice. Use a suppressor to limit the sound. Bag the fucker up after you kill it and send it out with the next trash pick up.

The cage thing probably will work just be prepared to be catching some opossums and raccoons along

the way as well.

If you can, use some raw meat. I hope this helps.

I had a feral cat attacking my cats. I bought a trap at Harbor Freight. I tried tuna and canned cat food, and it worked great. I caught the neighborhood lady raccoon and some possums, but that damn cat could get in and out the trap without tripping it. All of this over a span of maybe three weeks.

Then I put in some catnip tied to the roof over the trip mechanism, and in 45 minutes, I had my cat. I guess that professional trappers use it. I don't know if Harbor Freight has a big enough trap for a 30-pound critter, but if they do, that'll work. Don't put out poison since that usually backfires and kills anything that eats it.

Good luck.

I would suggest that she gets a male friend to handle that. Nothing worse than a wounded cornered cat.

Get some raw meat, lace it with rat poison and leave it out for the bobcat.

 

That was my first thought, but she has already told to many people about the situation. The endangered species part is a problem. Maybe she can call a lawyer to threaten a lawsuit on the HOA. The cat needs to be relocated. If it shows back up after the dust dies down. KILL the mofo in secret

She can still do the raw meat. Good chance the cat's body will never be found and if it is they probably won't do an autopsy. Even if they do and determine that it was meat laced with rat poison, she will be a prime suspect but they can't prove anything.

 

Another thing you can do is shoot the cat broadside through the belly with a 22. It will run off pretty far away before it dies.

the bobcat must have a food source close by or it would not be hanging around

 

make sure your dogs are secure

 

then

 

buy some de-con rat poison and mix it up with hamburger meat

 

 

 

maybe do it twice...the bobcat will be gone soon enough

The animal control links are a great idea and they can likely help you.

The rat poison - not so much. Great potential for all kinds of unintended consequences with real liabilities.

Discharging a firearm within city limits (and I don't know where you live) could be a felony firearm offense---really bad idea. Unincorporated, county (is there any of this area left in SoFla?) is more flexible in regard to firearm use.

 

That bobcat is the top predator in his feeding range, has already harvested/depleted all his natural/normal food sources and now has no choice but to "urban/suburban" hunt. This animal is a very efficient/adaptable hunter, being that he can no longer feed in the pine hammock (park), he has adapted to hunting where food is available---your yard.

 

This is not a FL panther, it is not an endangered species.

 

IMO, Brothersam's suggestion is the best course of action, ONLY with total secrecy. Be aware if there is one bobcat, there is most likely others of the same group.

Use a crossbow to kill it . Swift Silent and deadly more effective hit broadside than a firearm as the arrow is designed for the target to hemorrhage or bleed out very quickly.

It should be mentioned that this is a living breathing animal that is only doing what it instinctively see's fit for it's survival. 

 

When you think about it for a minute, it is WE that imposed on it's territory. Linda is doing the right thing. The poor little cat is just trying to survive. I hope they put it in a better place. Before SHE has to.

My concern is that this animal is visible.  Bobcats are going to be around, they are in regular neighborhoods, even ones without nature preserves. They typically leave pets and people alone because they are cautious and shy animals. I had one haunting my yard in a former home.  I kept all the trash tightly sealed, supervised my dog when he was in the yard, and kept the hose hand with a spray head set to the strongest single stream. Every time I saw that fucker, he got shot with water.  Added a motion sensor light system to the back yard too. Eventually he went and bothered somebody else.

 

Back up plan - pit bull.

Great, a potentially rabid Pit Bull. There has to be a way to trap and evaluate this potentially dangerous animal. Rats and Opossums don't carry rabbies, Bobcats DO.

 

Btw, it wood be dead on arrival in MY backyard. Just like my neighbors dog. 8P

The poor thing is just trying to survive in whatever is left of his natural habitat that someone invaded (more than likely all of us), and if he had a choice, he would order takeout or home delivery.

Unfortunately, he has no friends and you have plenty.

He needs to find an alternate source of food, but poisoning him for being himself is cruel and inhumane.

This is the first reasonable reply. What do you expect when you buy a house that borders a state wildlife refuge. With the privacy and beauty comes the issues and concerns of the wild life.

 

Domestic cats are no match for a wild cat and should be kept indoors. To many cat owners like to let there cats out to roam free and they should not be permitted to do so as this is one of the tragedies that happens to them. . Also that fence is not keeping anynthing in or out of your yard.

I am in total agreement......and while I am a cat guy, and certainly feel Linda's pain, if she lives in West Boca up against a nature preserve, I hope she realizes that her community is imposing on the bobcat's natural territory, not the other way around, and is only following it's instincts.

 

It's nothing personal......just nature doing a natural thing.

 

I hope she can trap it, and perhaps somehow get it to the Bush Wildlife Sanctuary up in Jupiter so it doesn't have to needlessly be destroyed.

 

Fingers crossed.

I agree that this fence is a useless fence, but that what the H.O.A wanted..if it was me, it would been a wooden one...I live here since 2005 never had this..and my cats stay in my yard..he jumps over the fence to get them, they like to sit on the patio outside..and been doing this for years!!!

It looks like he's staying where he is when you took these pics. In other words, he's not running away when he sees you. It doesn't look like he's afraid of you. That's usually an indication that some meathead (pun intended) humans are feeding him.

if the other suggestions don't appeal to you then I would write a letter (registered with return receipt) to your HOA and the FWC (and any other official person or entity you can think of) explaining how the bobcat is not afraid of humans. For alligators this is usually enough to classify it as a nuisance and will be trapped. Hopefully, the bobcat will be classified as such by the FWC. Sending the letter this way may light a little fire under their ass to do something. And in your letter to the HOA you should demand that they notify all residents to not feed the bobcat and that they should take corrective action (explain that the whole community is in danger from this bobcat).

 

Good luck!

Linda,

 

As an animal lover I am torn between the sympathy I feel for the loss of your beloved pets and the beauty of a wild animal trying to survive in an area that we have encroached on.  Please do not try and kill him or poison him.  I would obviously only let your animals out while you are with them, if at all, until he has relocated on his own or by the use of traps.  A big dog would definitely keep him away but that is not a viable solution unless you want another pet.  Did you call the Wildlife Care Center in Fort Lauderdale (954) 524-4302 for advice?

Was going to avoid commenting as Linda seems to have handled the issue.

 

I do agree with OW that the animal is just trying to survive.

As stated he is on a Nature Reserve it is the community that has infringe into it's natural hunting range.

Butt I do understand that is a different argument.

And not a potential solution.

 

Shooting it is really not for the unqualified to attempt.

injure it and then anyone of your neighbors or their children might become a target.

 

Poisoning it might be effective butt again loads of potential for collateral damage to other wildlife and domestic animals also. So Poisoning it is very questionable "solution".

 

2 potential ways to handle the problem is contact Flaming Gardens in Broward county as they currently have a Bobcat display and the cat is solo. And it might work a solution for you.

.

Another way is talk with a farm supply store. They might be able to advise you to hire someone who could install an electrical top wire to your fence facing the preserve. If your fence is HOA maintained perhaps your community would set aside funds to the whole length of preserve fencing bordering your community.

If it is state or fed owned ask them to set the fencing.

( I seem to recall that african tribesman did the same to control "Big Cats" and it worked for them.)

 

Sample

 

 or maybe even

 

Good luck on resolving issue

ok the traps are out and plenty of good food in them..no poison ..I wouldn't do that since I am very much so an animal lover myself...the trapper will relocate him, if caught...so far noting..I look up the laws, and talk to a lot of state people on this... YOU ARE NOT ALLOW TO KILL OR POISON A BOBCAT!!! IF you do  a big fat fine or even prison... YOU MUST GO WITH A CERTIFIED LICENSE TRAPPER COMPANY, I did call my H.O.A , they are sending out emails to all the neighbors,and will reimburse my money,...THIS IS CONSIDERED AN ENDANGER SPECIES,IN FLORIDA...I will keep you posted if it get caught in the trap...The TRAPPERS USE TUNA FISH AND CAT FOOD.. IF this food does not work I put in bloodly fresh ground meat.. He is a beautiful animal thou.....thank you all for your advice..,

Linda, the trap may end up luring a possum or raccoon, and a raccoon caught in the trap finally lured the bobcat to come kill and eat it. I hope the trap is big enough for two or the bobcat may be able to back out of it.

I'm not suggesting you solve your problem by killing it but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission just published their "Florida's Threatened and Endangered Species" list earlier this month. The only felid on it is the Florida panther. There are other reasons that you may get fined for killing a bobcat but it's not because it's endangered.

I had a problem with raccoons killing my chickens. I thought about trapping them but ultimately at the end of the day it is easier to shoot them and put them out with the garbage. If there was a bobcat in my yard, I would shoot it and not think twice. It is awful that you can't enjoy your back yard....

I didn't read everybody else's post because they were all very similar. I work in mainly residential real estate and what you really have is a health and safety issue that the HOA needs to acknowledge and dust you with and not blow you off. Bobcats carry rabies and I have seen them attack people. It is not your job to trap or kill the bobcat. You need to approach this a different way and if you would like some help I would be happy to help you.

Go to Walmart. Pick up one of these. It's a pellet gun. Perfectly legal to discharge for the disposition of undesirable critters and varmints on your property.

 

I have this brand. Crosman . But not this model. Enjoy target practice with a live moving target.

 

 

My best friend he shoots water rats and feeds them to his geese. I had rats that tried to move in to my yard. I killed a lot and the rest got the message and took a hike. My Squirrels would watch as I fired over their heads. They were tired of being robbed by rats.

Be very, very careful with raccoons. Gloves aren't enough protection. A trapped frightened enraged raccoon can literally tear you to pieces. I'd let the trapper handle them, if you don't have a way of opening the trap and releasing them at a safe distance.

So I read a little more. Your pets will be able to hear it but because the machines are very specific for certain animals it shouldnt affect them. A house cat may be similar to bobcat and might be upset by the same sounds so best to read more about that before purchasing one.

another pic..starting to feel like that old movie if you remember the predator...afraid to go out to my back  yard!!!

Any outdoor house cat owners know that stalking is in a cat's nature. Of course, when a bobcat is doing the stalking, it's a real threat, especially to your pets.

 

This cat is not too afraid to approach in the daytime. I like the pellot gun and cross bow ideas.

 

Seems like you already hired help. But if you decide to take matters in your own hands, if you spend time in your patio for wine or cigarrette breaks, keep the weapons handy. And don't be shy about doing it in plain sight, so the bobcat associates you with the threat of injury/death. After a few stings/near misses, it could scare it off, if you don't injure first.

If FWC doesn't act and until you find a better solution, the least you can do is progressively condition the bobcat to fear you by shooting at it (1. cross bow 2, pellet gun 3. water hose gun - if you have sufficient water pressure).

God it gets worst everyday!!!! NOW I HAVE A FUCKING COYOTE!!! I feel like I am living in the woods than Florida...never had this before...been here for 12 years, they are building up west boca, and these wild animals are being push into the residential areas....I call the wild life and fish , they are so worthless...One of my neighbor stop me today told me he had a coyote in his yard!!! And he lives 4 houses away!!!! Anyone wants to hunt, well I have plenty to hunt right out my back door in Boca yet!!!

 

When I lived up north we had Coyotes around all the time. You could hear them howling most every night. No fences were allowed where I lived unless it was for your horse and around your stable etc...  We had all kinds of things that came out after dark up there. It was common practice to spray the perimeter of our property with ammonia to keep critters at bay. Most people did it when they cut the grass...... For the most part it worked rather well.

 

I would suggest you stop putting any food out at all your inviting them to dinner. Then..........

 

Go to home depot and get a one gallon sprayer (the kind you put weed killer in)  and some plain NON-sudsing ammonia and lot's of it. I think they used to dilute it 50/50 with water. Spray the ground heavily with the ammonia on HIS side at least 3 or 4 feet of the fence or as far as you can reach.  They cant stand the stench ammonia and it should deter your pesky friends and hopefully make them relocate. It might work on the first try but you might have to do it everyday for a while....it's worth a try. A pain in the A$$ to do, but cheap and no one gets hurt :)

 

Be warned though...... certain types of ammonia will kill or turn the grass brown. At this point though if it were me I wouldn't be concerned with a bit of brown grass. I know there were certain types of ammonia we used but don't recall the name now sorry. But it was over the counter basic ammonia. It's worth a shot.

 

Good luck.

Why don't you just make friends with the fuckin thing. Introduce it to your cats and dogs and feed it. Teach it to harass any neighbors that you don't like. Its a cat, a pussy, use it to set up threesomes. This is known as living in harmony with nature.

I love being ignored! Anyway, I actually live and work mostly in Arizona and once the neighbor put antifreeze in meat to kill the coyotes and killed my cat Molly instead. She went into cardiac arrest and died a horribly painful death in less than an hour.

As for the Bobcat, google the City of Cottonwood AZ and Bobcat. I live in Sedona Az and the town to the west of me is Cottonwood. It made national news when a rabid Bobcat entered a full bar and attacked people, biting a few of them.

So my recommendation is what I posted earlier before you kill someone's pet that they love trying to rid yourself of coyotes and bobcats or expose yourself and/or others to rabies. But what do I know?... Actually, more than you realize. Btw, coyotes will go after small animals and babies if they are hungry enough but they are rarely seen prowling around in the day time. At my house in Arizona, I can hear them celebrating their kills howling all night.

Have you tried calling Ron Magill at the Miami Zoo? When I worked there, he used to go out and nab critters that people had worries about. Don't know if he still does it, but maybe he can steer you to some who will. Just a thought...
