If you've ever wanted to know what the worst way to release a bobcat back into the wild, this is it.
Their hearts may have been in the right place, but these two men demonstrate how one should not release a bobcat after it has become trapped.
In the following video, two men armed with spades take measures into their own hands by attempting to free a fiery bobcat in the wild. As the video is being filmed, a female can be heard voicing sound advice to watch out as the bobcat jumps about in an effort to escape.
It's not long before the bobcat gets free, jumping up into the face of one of the men before running off.
Luckily, the man got off lightly by losing his hat in the process, but I'm pretty sure they won't be trying the same technique again if they come across a trapped bobcat in the wild.
