Bobcats Could Be Expanding Range

(Springfield, IL)  —  Don’t be surprised if you see a bobcat in your neighborhood. Illinois wildlife managers last week said despite a successful first year of trapping, bobcats are becoming more common in many parts of the state. Neal Graves, with the Illinois Trappers Association says the bobcat is making a comeback in Illinois. Conservationists say you may see cats in your backyard, but don’t worry they won’t attack humans.
