In case you have not seen or heard, there have been many, many sightings of bobcats in the Placitas area lately. About a month ago I spotted a bobcat who had been hit on Highway 165 near the S Curves. He was a beautiful cat about 2 foot long (not including his tail). I didn't see him get hit, but after I pulled him off the road I decided that maybe we should all try to keep our speed close to the speed limit on Highway 165. I have had calls of sightings of bobcats from all over the Placitas area!
