A Neighbour Is Trying To Trap Something — But I Am Sure It Is NOT My Bear, & Better NOT Be My Bobcat.

They have had this small (humane) trap out for the last two nights. I took this picture last night on my 11pm walk.
You can see the TWO blue paper dishes with what looks like dog food. There are three of these, but one is in darkness. They are all OUTSIDE of the trap. [This morning, following the quite spectacular thunderstorm we had, the bowls were waterlogged & the trap was still open.]
I assume they know what they are doing. So, will notice that they have draped it in blankets so that the animal can’t see too much of the metal or shape.
I am sure of one thing. It is NOT for MY bear. Trap is too small. That is good. I do NOT want my bear or bears trapped. I am cool with them. I like bears.
It could, however, be for MY bobcat. He/she isn’t that big & this house is sure on its route. I do NOT want to see the bobcat trapped. I am not even sure whether you can legally trap a bobcat. I do not know — & don’t have the time to check. SMILE.
It better NOT be for my bobcat. IF I see it in the trap, I will let it out. SMILE. I am like that.
Stay tuned. This could be FUN. Smile.
