Scoping Out A Potential Meal

March 27, 2014

Wayne Wheeler has been feeding birds at as home on Clyde Street in Newport for decades. He has had to chase away a number of cats who viewed the birds at his feeder as tasty morsels.

Although bobcats are common in Vermont, many Vermonters live here all their lives and never see these illusive creatures, however, this year the harsh winter is bringing them out of hiding in search of food.
