The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is interested in hearing about recent sightings of bobcats, particularly those in Northwestern Vermont in the towns of Bolton, Richmond, Huntington, Hinesburg, Charlotte, Monkton, Jericho, and Starksboro.

A study is being conducted by Vermont Fish & Wildlife biologists and colleagues at the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit that will provide information on bobcat home range size, habitat use and movements. The study involves capturing bobcats and outfitting them with light-weight GPS collars, which record the location of the animal daily.

If you have spotted a bobcat recently, please notify Kim Royar at 802-885-8831 within four days of the sighting.
