Returning to the launch from doing a job on the Atchafalaya River, I spotted something trying to swim the swift current upstream. At first I thought it was a nutria rat, but as I got closer I realized that it was a bobcat, and a big one. It was swimming really fast, so I drove along side to snap a picture. Well I got a little too close and he decides that getting on my boat was going to be easier than swimming. The bobcat swam towards the stern of my boat and made it within a foot of the stern when I threw it in gear and drove further up. I snapped a couple more pictures before he made a mad dash for the bank, where he arrived tired but safe.
I don't think anyone would believe me, but I have pictures
