  • The most comprehensive and up-to-date book to appear in forty years on the natural history and management of bobcats
  • Describes the stark difference between furbearer management and game management: that furbearer management is motivated by profit. In the case of bobcats, profit motive is a far greater influence than science in the management of the species.
  • Touches on the highly controversial subject of fur trapping. Is wildlife a commodity to be exploited or a community to which we belong? This shift in cultural values is at the heart of the controversy.
