    Notice the 71-year-old man was able to “put the cat down”. Don’t mess with those old men. He probably had a pistol in his pocket.

    Stop building Super Wal-Marts where wild animals call home, and this wouldnt happen.

    There wasnt any reason to kill the bobcat. I mean, it wasnt like they were being attacked by a grizzly.

    Wimps couldnt scare off a bobcat?

    They should quit the boy scouts and join karate.
