The bobcat is an amazing creature and when you see how it hunts it is even more amazing. I am sure things like this happen in the wild all the time but it is rarely captured on video. This is one of the most amazing videos I have ever seen.
Squirrels are pretty acrobatic in their own right and this squirrel did everything in its power to avoid the cat but it was not enough. The bobcat flipped jumped and came down with his dinner.
Artist Toby Gray captured this video on 28 Nov 2018 in his backyard. He posted the video to Facebook where it went viral and he subsequently posted the video to youtube with added slow motion shots and a little more information on the situation.
Here is what Toby had to say about the video.
I haven’t posted any art videos in a while (life has been busy, but if you follow me on FB, Instagram, or, *gasp*, my actual website, you know the art is still happening), but I had to take the time to share this amazing bit of nature my wife and I witnessed recently. I have always been in awe of the natural world we belong to, and it definitely inspires and influences my work. Enjoy.
Wow, that is amazing. The athletism is astounding. Thank you, Toby, for sharing this video.
