More Information on Arizona bobcats
Bobcats are common throughout Arizona, even in developed areas, but tend to live in the rimrock and Chaparral areas, and on the edge of urban areas where abundant food supplies exist. Bobcats tend to travel and hunt alone, but may be seen as mating pairs, siblings, or mothers with kittens. Bobcats look much like domestic cats, but are much larger, with long legs and distinct pointy ears and short “bobbed” tails.
Bobcats are attracted by pet food, outside watering bowls, unsecured garbage cans, fruit under trees, unattended small pets and areas providing shelter. Bobcats can jump as high as 12 feet and easily clear standard 6′ block wall fencing.
If you encounter a bobcat, scare it away by:
Making loud noises
Wave your hands or sticks in the air
Throw sticks, stones or whatever is available
Use pepper spray or mace, if available
Move toward other people or areas of safety
Keep eye contact and DO NOT run away
