Bobcats Spotted in Boone County

Trail cameras captured images of a pair of bobcats in Boone County.

Wildlife Properties, LLC, a Petersburg-based outdoors and sporting goods business, posted a couple of images to its Facebook page, and they have been shared nearly 2,000 times.

The company said that they received the images from trail cameras near CVG Airport and in an area just outside Petersburg.

Experts say that bobcats are no threats to humans and will likely avoid dogs, too.

Cats could be a different story, though.

"They're timid. If they catch a house cat in the woods or something like that I'm sure they're going to take advantage of it, but I wouldn't look for them to come into your yard or around your house," said Buster Craddock, president of Wildlife Properties, in an interview with WXIX. "For the most part, they're more afraid of you than you are of them."
