Watch Out for Foxes Dressed Like Bobcats

I suppose there was once a day in this country that if someone spotted a wild creature about a children’s school, the teacher or perhaps principal would have gathered kids around to point out the animal and talk about it. Not any longer. You lock the kids down in their school in total fear of an animal, and as it turns out, the school officials didn’t even know what the animal was.

At a South Florida school someone reported seeing a “bobcat” roaming around the grounds of the school. A shutdown ensued. Now read the idiot comments made about bobcats:

They typically eat small mammals such as squirrels, rabbits and raccoons, and have a natural fear of people, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

“They’re very shy and reclusive. The only time there would be a concern is if there was rabies,” said Carli Segelson, FWC spokeswoman.(emboldening added)

So if bobcats are fearful of people and are very shy and reclusive, what was it doing at a children’s school playground? Oh, it must have rabies! What if it doesn’t?

Oh, but wait! That doesn’t really matter as it seems the bobcat was really a fox, or turned into a fox. It’s just really not clear.

The important thing is those kids got locked up. Right?

What have we become?
