Bob Cat on local golf course

Each year the casino where I work sponsors a charity golf tournament. I am the tournament coordinator. It is a blast. Once all the "work" is done the day of the tournament I drive around in a golf cart and make sure everyone is having a good time.

Last year while driving around we saw a bobcat. He was beautiful. We saw him walking so we chased - I mean followed - him in the golf cart. Note: All pictures taken with Verizon Wireless ENV - original model

We watched the bobcat walk to the edge of the weeds and saw him hunch down. He appeared to be hunting something. His tail was twitching and he looked ready to pounce. So we got closer. I thought for sure we were going to see National Geographic right there in Beaumont.

We watched whatever he was watching for a while and then we decided to get a little closer.

He laid down in the shade and rested. We were so close to him that you could hear his breath. He didn't appear to be too concerned with us. Keep in mind, he is a wild animal, we were in an open golf cart (not so much as a fiberglass windshield) AND Laura is on blood thinners. She was hanging out of the golf cart to get a better picture with my cell phone. This year I will bring my camera!

We hope to see him again this year!!!
