INDIANTOWN, Fla. (AP) - Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say a man in Martin County was attacked by a 30-pound bobcat.
The attack happened Friday, when two men working on a fence on
private property in Indiantown spotted the feline.
As the cat approached, one of the men moved his arms to shoo it away; the bobcat jumped on the man.
Officials said the other worker used a hammer to kill the bobcat.
Authorities will test the cat carcass for rabies.
