Wild Bobcat Goes Viral With A Huge Effortless Leap It Makes Over The River

A bobcat spotted on Pecan Island in Louisiana, the USA makes a long jump over water look easy, demonstrating its incredible agility. The person filming explains:

We were just out fishing for blue crab in Pecan Island, LA and this huge bobcat came out across the weir. I grabbed my phone thinking he was about to get wet, but he surprised us all.”

Bobcats are elusive and nocturnal, so they’re rarely spotted in daylight. But this time, we are in for a treat for all the wild feline fans out there.

The impressive moment of a bobcat leaping across the weir for what seems like forever was captured on camera in Pecan Island, Louisiana. The feline is seen composing himself right before the jump and reaching the other side in one single move.

His effortless and graceful travel in midair may make you wanna try that (at home). But trust me, there’s only 1 Olympic gold medal and the winner is clear. Plus, it’s dangerous, so let’s leave the flying bit for dreams only.

Laurel Serieys, a wildlife biologist at the University of Cape Town and project coordinator at Urban Caracal Project, spoke about the long-distance jumpers. It turns out, “bobcats can easily jump several meters” and many smaller cats about their size can do it too.

In this particular case, “the bobcat is trying to avoid getting wet, and given what agile athletic animals they are, jumping across the bridge is not too difficult,” commented Laurel. In fact, the cat may have been up for some prey. “We’ve seen bobcats hunting near water for waterfowl, so perhaps it was hunting nearby and trying to get from one side of the water to the other.”

Meanwhile, larger cats can jump much further than this without too much effort. Laurel said that “if they are jumping across something, their leap can reach 6 meters.”

Sea Turtles Get Rescued From Unnecessary Suffering

As you may know, barnacles are some sort of crustacean that usually fix themselves to rigid surfaces as rocks or even ships. Yet, sometimes they can attach to the sea turtles shell. Although one single barnacle doesn’t particularly cause any sort of damage, if the barnacles number found on a turtle’s shell is too high, that could turn into real struggles for the hopeless marine creature. Swimming difficulties, infections and even poor eyesight can be the result of these sticky crustacean.

And today we will focus on a random act of kindness, where a heroic guy from Sri Lanka, decides to help some poor sea turtles to dispose of a burden that could eventually cost their lives. The helpful man, called Chika Boy is great fond of wildlife and always willing to step up for the hopeless animals. This time, he removes the barnacles from the turtle’s shell!

So, in his latest YouTube video, Chika Boy shows us the easiest way to help a sea turtle to get rid of those unpleasant guests. You can see how many barnacles attached themselves to this tiny sea turtle. Fortunately, this nice guy removes them all using a special tool. Then, with its shell clean, Chika Boy releases the turtle back in the ocean.
