I agree K-in-Z has issues too much time on her hands and not very educated on any issues...

Is she looking for her 15 minutes of fame?

Richard I have to agree. Where does she think the cat has been all this time. Does she think it came from some other area and just ended up on the poll. The cat did not harm anyone therefore there is no reason to remove/kill it etc. The cat has lived in harmony with the residents of that area obviously for some time as it does not look anywhere near to be a kitten.

People these animals are quite scared of people, they will simply run the opposite way, so chill out unless your holding an 18 ounce steak you got nothing to worry about, or maybe we should kill him like the alligators just to keep all you safe an happy, for that matter I say everyone should go out tonite an hunt down every two legged an four legged animal out there, cause we all know we are in abundance of them both.

Thanks for taking the time to do this and let the animal go to the wild. People are just too far gone now a days to let animals be. The reason they are coming around like this to begin with is because we are building on their habitat!!

I am glad that they let the cat go, we are losing so much of nature in our quest for paradise. we forget that the real meaning of natural beauty of Florida is including wildlife, it comes part and parcel with animals. We are actually drive them out of their homes.

That bobcat is beautiful. Maybe some wild animal organization should start rounding them all up and get them to a safe haven.

I am astonished at kathleens comment, im just speechless that someone has such ignorance. Jennifer even tho your heart is in the right place, these animals are wild, and wild animals never fair very well in captivity. What these workers did was 100 percent right. They made and effort to try and help it get down safely. Then they went on their merry way leaving it alone. What a beautiful picture. Mother nature at her finest. And kathleen if tho your stupidity doesnt even deserve a comment, i will say this, you have more of a chance of your or your neighbors dog eating your children than this cat.
