The Murphy Conference
The City of Murpy is having a conference to discuss the death of a bobcat, shot in the head while confined in a live trap. In a few days, the director of NBRR and myself will be on our way to speak on the subject.
We will see how it goes. The City of Murphy has expressed that they now realize that the situation could have been handled far differently. I completely agree. I hope that as an organization, we may be able to take this opportunity to not only educate the public on the true nature of bobcats, but also to educate city officials on wildlife in general, and more appropriate channels in which to handle said wildlife. Wish us luck on this endeavor. More on the subject later.
