Re: the recent story in the Times about a bobcat seen near Easy Street in Morgan Hill. These beautiful felines are indeed living amongst us. They’re becoming more “urbanized” because development is encroaching on their native habitats and driving them further into residential areas. They are searching for food and water. Bobcats are shy, solitary animals and will not attack humans, if left alone.
The other day I was driving on No Name Uno in Gilroy at dusk when the car in front of me swerved out of our lane into the empty oncoming lane and then swerved back into the proper lane. It was a good thing too. Because of that driver's actions, I noticed the woman in dark clothes facing traffic, walking in the scrubby grasses alongside of the roadway with three leashed dogs. They were very hard to see and only a few feet separated them from cars traveling 50mph or more.
