Bobcats Walking Around Northern Illinois?
As I'm driving down Route 2 on the way to work I passed 30+ turkeys on the side of the road.
Now it there wasn't all this snow I would have done a U-Turn and snapped a picture. But I probably would have not survived that, so I passed.
We are lucky to see a good amount of wildlife around these parts. Turkey, deer, eagle, bobcat...O.K. true story from the mouth of a police officer friend of mine, she saw with her own eyes a few years ago, a Bobcat in Loves Park.
I've seen a Red Fox or two in my neighborhood, that's pretty cool.
