Depends on location. An adult female is generally less than 20 pounds

Scary for her but I laughed at that part too.
I’m guessing it was after whatever critter ( I assume cat) that she had in the carrier.

Have to admit was funny. God I bet his hands is tore up from holding that thing. Reminds me of a friend who decided he was gonna get a raccoon out of my live trap with his bare hands. Yep didn’t take him long to get cut loose from it

Just saw this on another forum and seeing it here now. They both could have been lunch meat if he wasn't carrying.

Boy, after watching this video, I sure wish we could see a video of BobNelson35Whelen hand fighting a Tasmanian Devil? He'd have to heal from his surgeries first, but it would/could be quite entertaining. Wonder how far he could shot put it? Any bets? I say 15 feet.

Is that a juvenile Bobcat , I thought they were bigger ?
They are small critters. Also as elusive as a leopard. So I'm shocked to hear of one attacking someone. We had a Bobcat den on our property and from about 12 to 21, I spent a lot of time trying to see it on something besides a game Camara. It won, I surrendered and haven't been back lol

I had a coon as a pet, and I learned a lot about them. They are extremely intelligent and clean, they wash their food before eating it. She would follow me around like a puppy, and slept on my bed. Anytime my dad walked in, she would run up his legs and bite him on the ass, every time lol

As she reached breeding age, her temperament started changing. I was the only one that could mess with her at that point. Anyone else got near her cage and she turned into the incarnation of evil. I released her, because at the time, my county didn't allow to have them spade. Now it's different.

A full grown bore can whoop 3 dogs and walk off. So my hats off to the man he grabbed one with his bare hands. They have a thumb like us, so I'm surprised it let go of him lol

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
