Here is your link.
From the article:
Some residents said they are nervous about walking at night, while others are concerned that the wild cats may get into their homes.Ha ha.
Of course the real problem here is also pointed out in the article:
. . . they are also protected animals, and the FWC will not remove them unless they are causing a nuisance or have rabies.Are they kidding? Does that mean the residents can't trap the furballs and kill them or at least transport them far away and dump them? On the plus side I guess it's probably against the law for residents there to have chickens.
Seems to me that people have been trying to wipe out bobcats for a hundred years or more in this nation and haven't managed to make much headway. I seriously doubt that killing the ones in that town would make a difference.
