Bobcat Caught on Camera

Sometimes the most interesting photos are captured entirely by chance. Tim Broos, 57, is an avid outdoorsman and hunter when he’s not working as our Chief Information Officer.

A motion-activated camera he strategically placed in a meadow alongside the Kyte River just outside Rochelle captured this impressive photo of an adult bobcat (lynx rufus).

I thought it’d make for an interesting photo on this sunny Friday afternoon.

    Great picture, Tim. If the Bobcat was photo was captured by chance, I am curious what you were hoping to capture with this strategically placed camera.

    Tim, that wild animal is just to close to my home in Rochelle, but what a beautiful photo!

    I don't think I'll share with my grand daughters. They will never go outside and play again.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Very cool. Reports of DNR releasing wolves a cpl of yrs ago in northern Ill. / sightings of cougars… very interesting. WI tags their wolves w/radio's and you can go online to see where their radio frequency is transmitting.
