Unlucky Duck: Maine Bobcat Pounces on Bird

A Maine bobcat demonstrated her incredible hunting skills, stalking and nabbing an unfortunate duck in the snow.

Video taken by Randall Ellicott, who told Storyful he filmed it in Greene on January 23, shows the bobcat hiding and then pouncing on a bird.

“This is a mother cat with two kittens, and they come by my daughter’s house daily looking to get a quick meal of squirrel or anything else they can catch,” Ellicott said. “They look for mice and little critters along the stone wall. It is awesome to see them hunt.”
