Bobcat, not bear, blamed for attack on sleeping camper
A Minnesota DNR official said it looks like a bobcat pounced on a man's head in Itasca State Park and tried to pull him away.
(Spaulding and John Erb, a DNR biologist who studies bobcats, said they've never heard of one attacking a human. Spaulding traps the animals and said he's seen evidence that they've killed fawns, lambs and full-grown sheep, but not people.)
And we're to believe that this was the first time a bobcat did attack a human. Right. Everybody and their brother knows it was more than likely a terrorist squirrel; but with the lax borders at these state parks, you know the culprit is probably long gone and back into some other forest by now.
