Letter To The Editor: Bobcat On Perimeter Trail

Los Alamos

Today just before 6 a.m. on my morning walk, just south of the intersection of the Mitchell Trail and the Perimeter Trail, I saw a bobcat.  

I was heading north and heard a noise like something heavy making a quick sprint through the brush off to my left. It must have been hunting, but it saw me and stopped. 

We stared at each other for about a minute – beautiful animal, then it turned and walked away over a little hill and disappeared. We were probably about 25 feet apart.
