Starving Littlefork bobcat mauls dog, ends up being shot

Email

An apparently starving bobcat met a small dog in a small garage in Littlefork, Minn., last week, an encounter that turned out fatal for both animals.

Lloyd Steen, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer, was called to the Koochiching County home Thursday on reports that a dog had disappeared and that a "cougar" was trapped in the owner's garage.

The cat turned out to be a 30-pound female bobcat.
