A close up video of a bobcat in Brooks and coyotes in Bangor remind us of exacting what we're living with here in Maine.

As we know, wildlife runs a mok here in Maine, but when you actually see these critters up close, it's pretty impressive! Thus the filming of a bobcat in Brooks earlier this week, feeding off of a deer semi-buried in the woods.

Adult male bobcats in Maine can grow between 20 and 30 lbs. and up to three feet in length.  The live within a range of 36 miles,  according to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Then there's last week's story of coyotes making their way into Bangor neighborhoods, oh my.  One video that's making the rounds today is that of a pit bull in New Hampshire that was attacked by a couple of coyotes in it's own backyard.

There's about 12,000 coyotes living in Maine and they can grow as big as 45 lbs. They mainly feast on small animals, so they may have only been looking to chase the dog in the video away.  Once again, more information on coyotes can be found at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
