As a chicken owner, I know how helpless you can feel when there's a predator afoot terrorizing your animals. I've spent a few nights chasing off raccoons until payday when we could get a plank of wood to make coop repairs. I totally get that feeling. So when a petting zoo owner lost more than a dozen animals to a bobcat, I'm sure it was beyond frustrating.
Luckily the owner of Tucson Petting Zoo and Funny Foot Farm doesn't have to worry anymore now that the bobcat has been captured and is being relocated elsewhere. I'm so glad they're not putting the bobcat down. I know that in some cases it's unavailable, but if you can help all of the animals in question survive, that's the best case scenario.
