You might think this photo was taken in the Wilderness or some isolated place in the California Mountains, it was not. It was photographed less than 10 miles from my house. The High Desert of Southern California is an ever changing landscape with people and business displacing the local wildlife. The Bobcats were born on a roof in a heavily populated area and because they were around people everyday they had no fear of them. The new family was making the students and staff nervous so they were moved to a 600 acre ranch and set free, I hope they do well. They are deceptively cute. They are most definitely not kitties.
