INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State Natural Resources officials want a hunting and trapping season for bobcats in Indiana.
DNR officials say Indiana’s bobcat population has been expanding in recent years. The cat was taken off the state’s endangered species list in 2005.
The proposal would establish quotas and bag limits.
Wildlife and environmental groups say the state does not have specific data showing the bobcat population could support opening such a season.
Visit the DNR page on bobcats for more information.
