Candice Rogers, of NH Fish and Game, introduces us to New
Hampshire’s own wildcat, the elusive bobcat, on Tuesday, August 27,
at 6 pm at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library.
Imagine you are taking a quiet walk at dusk. Enjoying the scenery,
the sounds, the smells. When all of sudden you see an animal out of
the corner of your eye, leaping upon a pile of rocks. You’re pretty
sure you just saw a cat, but it was just so BIG! Don’t second guess
yourself! The bobcat is taking NH back. After the outlawing of
hunting the species in 1989 the bobcats have been increasing their
numbers in the Granite State. Join us to learn about NH’s very own
wildcat! How big are they? Where do they live? What do they hunt?
How long do they live? Come find out the answers to all you wild
The presentation is free and open to the public. The library is on
NH Route 140 opposite the Gilmanton School in Gilmanton Iron Works.
