[quote="Paul Mattson"]Game wardens killed a 20 pound bobcat in Milo after several people around town reported seeing it. Some of those sightings were near the elementary school. It was only after it went underneath a man's porch that wardens found it and shot it.

Warden Dan Carroll says with the cold, snowy weather, bobcats are having a difficult time getting food in the woods. Instead, they are coming to town to prey on small animals like those near bird feeders.

Why the devil did they shoot it? Bobcats do not attack people, they help control vermin.

Wait. I understand...we like vermin. We sned them to city hall and Augusta with alarming regularity.

MILO — There have been some strangers lurking around the Milo-Brownville area in recent weeks but they haven’t been the two-legged kind.

Two bobcats, which typically are nocturnal and solitary animals, were shot and killed recently after residents raised concerns about their presence in the community.

Last week, several people called wardens and the Milo Police Department to report they had seen a bobcat lurking around the local carwash, at Bailey Lumber, on High Street and [b]near the Milo Elementary School.[/b][/quote]

Bobcats kill deer. They jump on the deer and move under the deer's throat where they bite into the carotid arteries and also attempt to crush the wind pipe. The deer soon goes down.

My first reaction to this story was, "Why didn't they catch and remove it?", but if they are starving what can be done. I saw one sitting on the back steps of my folks place in Orono years ago in the dead of winter. It watched the birdfeeders.

Does anyone know why they killed it instead of re-locating it?
