While out turkey hunting, Kevin Walter of Manassas, Va, spotted a bobcat making its way toward him.
As the cat got closer, Walter, a wildlife biologist, took out his camera phone to record the rarely-seen animal. When it got directly behind him, Walter gave a few squirrel distress calls which stopped the cat in its tracks.
After a brief pause, it started to stalk him, and without warning, jumped towards Walter’s phone which was held close to his face. Walter instinctively swatted the cat away, and it bounced off his arm. The bewildered cat took off into the woods. Neither Walter nor the cat sustained any injuries.
