A dead female bobcat was spotted at the intersection of Centerville Road and the Buckhead subdivision at 7:45 am on Tuesday. Due to heavy morning traffic and being a school bus pick-up location, the bobcat was reported to the LCSO dispatcher who said a deputy would check it out and take proper action. It was estimated to be about 4 and 1/2 to 5 feet in length.

A picture is attached.

    to all you morons seeing panthers and lynx's...The picture is of a bobcat and he is dead.....who ever measured it is probably confused as to what 6 inches actually is so they certainly can't measure 3 feet...

    TPD will be closing Centerville Road between Capital Circle and Moccasin Gap for the rest of the day while they investigate.

    Bobcats are usually 3 feet long, that is until they are run over by a car, then they may reach 4.5 to 5 foot long.

    Why is it wearing a flea collar?

    we are building houses on top of the wildlife's environment. What do you expect? I can't believe WCTV posted a photo of something that was hit by a car. Thank goodness it didn't leave a mess like other roadkill

    Perhaps it was a small panther? I have a good friend who lives in Gadsden county and lives very close to lots of vacant land and she said that she has a FL panther that lives out there on the land. She said she's actually seen it just a few times from afar near dusk.
