Bobcat Tries to Make a Meal of Turkey Hunter

youtube

As if getting surprised by an attacking bobcat isn't bad enough, this hunter actually films the feline stalking him before pouncing!

A West Virginia turkey hunter was sitting quietly when he noticed a bobcat crouching a few yards away. He got out his cell phone and recorded the animal.

I'm guessing he thought, "Cool. Don't see a bobcat every day. I should get him on film."

But this cat had bad intentions.

Watch the video below:

WOAH! Talk about a close call. One man hunting in Wetzel County quickly became the hunted.

The hunter's reaction was just about what you'd expect. Whether he went home with a turkey or not we don't know. But he's got something better anyway: a great story and film to back it up.
