Bobcat Release - Controversial Prequel

Do you remember the Featured video of the bobcat release, from those "nice guys" ? Well, they weren't so nice after all. Many questions were raised about who would do this, were there Permits in place, and who could be so cruel. Well, this clip tells all, as the guys who set the bobcat free are also the ones who illegally trapped it without permits. You will also see them teasing the bobcat. Guess they might not by such good fella's after all ? Watch for the bobcat strike at the 1:00 mark.

    • @Pissed_off_Canadian right? How many assholes would have clubbed it and skinned it just for the useless pelt? Fact is they let the critter go free, that's the best any one could have done in the circumstance... I still think trapping is a shitty thing to do, so cruel and unnecessary.

    • @Pissed_off_Canadian I agree with you - while i hate traps (and advise everyone that see one to destroy it - it's really horrible way to "hunt"), those guys did the right thing in the end...

    • @zAbArAkAtrAnEmIA_TheGreat And if they have a trailcam and catch you on video doing that you go to jail. period. To jail. Big fine too. Thou shalt not molest a hunter or damage or destroy the traps of a hunter in lawful pursuit of game. No faggot lawyer will get you out of it. No argument about "the humanity" will get you out of it. You go in the woods in Pa during a hunting season and fuck with hunters you go to jail. Real jail. With violent people. And junkies. And thieves. And rapis More..

      But you are right that it's not wise to fuck with hunters... not even in Greece!

  • So what's the difference now? That they had no permit? They didn't beat it with the bat, they just released it in the vid after? This is like saying someone who shoots his mom with a gun license is not as bad as someone who shoots his mom without a license, wtf.

  • In my State hunters get tags for taking game - one tag for one animal. Traps do not discriminate. They catch whatever steps in them. Sounds like they had some tags for fox but not bobcats so they let it go. Not sure where the video is from but by releasing the bobcat they may have been following the fish & game laws for their locale. If the trap broke any bones in the bobcat's paw or ankle though, it won't be able to hunt and will probably starve to death. That's why trapping is not a humane More..

    • @rcpilotjae its a double spring trap and has a gap between the jaws that just hold it so the paw cannot slid through. its no different then putting hand cuffs on a person they just cant slide them off. doesn't hurt the animal.

    • @linkmen of course it will hurt the animal, many will even break the limb trying desperatly to escape. traps should be outlawed, simply because a trap doesn't choose the game

      -Ahhh no modern foothold traps do not work that way, just as he said they act similar to handcuffs as they surround the leg and keep the paw from pulling through. And regularly checking the traps (as required) 1-2x day frees them before they can do damage.

  • I know absolutely nothing about hunting and maybe I should since I know people that do hunt, but I was under the impression that those jaw traps were illegal. but if not maybe they should be, anyone or anything could run into one of those, plus it looks like a prolonged agony.

  • To the one who wrote the description. Setting a LEGAL trap for a fox which they have a permit to trap, does NOT qualify as "illegally trapping a bobcat without a permit". Had they harvested the bobcat, THAT would be illegal. The guy clearly stated they were letting it go because they did NOT have a permit to trap a bobcat. What is it with people and their inability to apply simple logic and reason? Or are you intentionally trying to mislead the viewers with your false interpretation of More..

  • 2 teenage girls, neither one wearing fur for clothing, tormenting a trapped animal and taking their sweetass time releasing it......this video will be used as evidence by Fish and Game to prosecute. It doesn't matter what state they're in, trapping laws/regulations are mostly universal and these kids won't be getting another license for a long time, plus they'll be fined to the point where they may be hunting and trapping to stay fed and warm!

    • @ApotheosisOfMe I'm going by VDGIF regulations in regards to trapping because those are the laws I enforce as an FPO. If this was in Virginia and I came across these two jokers dancing around and taunting a Bobcat with a baseball bat(no firearm), they would be getting a minimum of a $500 fine and their traps seized on the spot. The judge might take it a little bit easier on them, but a USFS LEO, Game Warden, Park Ranger, or FPO will not be so easy to convince when we catch them acting like that.

    • @sirmoneymakpimpwether

      Last i checked, accidently trapping the wrong animal, and then trying to release it doesnt count as criminal.

      Being as the cat cant understand the "torment" and it would hate any humans passing by, the guys did all they could by releasing it. No harm, no foul.

    • @funkydslr As a trapper you have the responsibilty to know and understand the laws....says so on the permits themselves, and you obviously haven't read the permit. The mere fact that one is holding a baseball bat and the other a camera(not attemting to aid either the bobcat or his partner), means they're taking their time and thus not abiding the regulations they agreed to. Once again i'm citing VDGIF regulations....their state may allow getting in the face of a trapped animal without releasing More..

Afterwards you can call yourself hunter but you canĀ“t hunt because you have to choin the local (vilaggeĀ“s) hunting club. What costs a lot of money each year, but you arenĀ“t still allowed to hunt!

      When I saw the first video a few days ago I questioned their presence in my comment as it seemed too convenient for them to be there.

      Seeing this part of the encounter reminds us all NOT to take these videos at face value and question them but not necessarily be a perpetual sceptic.

    so i was at the zoo a few years ago, the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans.
    so they had this exhibit of some cat like this, i dunno might have been an ocelot or bobcat or fuking puma, i dont remeber.
    but anyway they had these neat fences that separated us from the animals.
    basically it was taught thin metal wire ran from top to bottom about 2 inches apart. so imagine old time jail bars that are just wires.
    anyway it is easy to just stick your hand between the wires, so i More..

We even went tothe killer whale show with me doing that. The nail on that finger still grows with a slit in it after all these years, because the cuticle was sliced through.
