    Bobcat dragging a shark out of the surf. Picture taken by John Bailey at Sebastian Inlet State Park. Maybe this should have been posted in the Bank Fishing section.

    That's pretty dang awesome. I watched Jim shockey's uncharted last night and they were hunting a croc that had just eaten a woman and a hippo walked out if the river, up to this massive crocodile and starts licking it! He was like "I ain't afraid of a little old lizard!" Some animals are tough as nails.

    Do Bobcats favor sharks? That's unbelievable!
    Please Don't block the ramp or the dock. My pontoon and crew cab require a wide berth.

    Looks like a very small thresher by the length of the top of the tail?
    That's amazing to me.
    I highly doubt these cats favor sharks and I am honestly sceptical about the photo. I believe it's real but I just don't see the ingredients coming together on their own iykwim.
    Don't hate me for my scepticism. It's an acquired outlook.
    If it is real then that cat had better know how to handle that fish. Otherwise it will get a bite that would put one of its own to shame.

    Many people have seen multiple Bobcats on this beach, there was also a picture of three Bobcats on the railing of the beach access boardwalk. It is legit, no reason for it not to be. Not sure if the shark was already injured in some way. The pic is also on the tourism FB page for Vero Beach.

    Yup. I looked deeper into it and I'm convinced it is real. According to what I read the Bobcat got spooked by the photographer and dropped the shark and ran away.
    Very cool event and I'm glad I was incorrect in assuming it was possibly a hoax.

    In general I don't think cats prefer it but some have gotten a taste for it. There is one lion pride on west coast of Africa that fishes, other then that all lions are scared of your dogs swimming pool full of water. Animals can be weird sometimes.

    Great picture, sorry that the photographer scared it off. Everyone deserves a good fish dinner. Thanks for posting the picture.

    I saw this photo a while back. I think it is real but somebody told me they thought the shark had been dead a while which I tend to agree with.

    One thing I am sure of... Them are some healthy looking cats.

    About 2 years ago we saw a nice size bobcat swim the ICW from the mainland over to Onslow Beach. We slowed down and watched him stroke on across. He came out onto shore, shook off and went into the brush. It was an unexpected but awesome sight. You got to get up early to see good stuff like that!

    That looks like a Puma cause the color is wrong. The shark looks alive cause it's bending toward the cat and that's how the cat lost its tail

    Not sure what you are looking at, but I clearly see the shadow of the shark. What do you supposed the spike is in the lower right? Hint, the sharks head. What else could it be, definitely not the Bobcat. Low angle of the sun is stretching the shadow. Most of the rest of the shark is covered by the Bobcat's shadow.

    If you can tell that the Bobcat is wet or dry, you have better eyes than I do. But then again you did not see the shadow of the sharks head, just saying.
