How big do bobcats get?? And what noises do they make? I have heard some noises in the yard and seen cat tracks. I walk my 2 dogs, a bullmastiff and an akita. I have a large yard that borders the woods. I walk the dogs through the woods everynight when i get home as they love the trails and exercise. Although i usually dont have them on a leash as they are trained to stay by my side. Since i have seen the Bobcat tracks i have been a little nervous. Should i be, eventhough i have 2 large dogs. If the Dogs did chase the cat would it climb a tree or fight back?? Would a bobcat ever attack a human? Would the dogs be able to handle a full grown bobcat? My Akita has had a few fights with the coyotes, although he has never been hurt as he is a big boy, 130LBS . He likes to roam the yard more than the bullmastiff. So i am more concerned about him. What should i do? I always figured with 2 big dogs i would be safe as i always thought bobcats were small. Now i read something that the head of the bobcat was taller than the hood of a parked car?? THATS HUGE!!! What should i do? Are the dogs safe? Sad

The simple answer to your question is this........bob cats are wild animals.......which means they are not predictable Exclamation

PGC is claiming a bob cat at 40 pounds just killed a 4 point buck Shocked

The deer was about 150 pounds.......

Be careful, use common sense, I would not let my dogs chase the cat.

Another consideration is rabies when our dogs have contact with wild animals.....
