Increase of Bearing Haired rabbits leading to additional bobcat sightings in the Nicola Valley.

WildSafe BC Coordinator Frank Ritcey says his office has received word of a number of sightings in the area over the past month.

"The Bearing Haired rabbit is a big part of their diet, so the general increase in the numbers of rabbits in the area is playing a part with the increased bobcat sightings we are hearing about."

Ritcey says bobcat sightings throughout the Southern Interior are up so far in 2016, when compared to this time in both 2015 and 2014.
