Bob Cat in the Arroyo

Pasadena, CA -- This wild cat looked either injured or hungry. He had wondered onto a popular path in the Arroyo Seco seemingly begging for food. A group of young men with sticks and rocks in hand approached the frightened bob cat while I was taking photos of it. When they saw me taking photos of the cat, as well as them with their weapons, they quickly dropped their weapons, acting as if nothing happened.

This day, my camera was my weapon, and it worked.

Wow, great job on the photo, and great job getting rid of those knuckleheads.

Unbelievable, JT. The beautiful photo, for one thing, and that anyone would attack a defenseless creature. Such cowards.

I wish you had gotten a photo of the rogue boys. Were you able to push the cat into an area of safety?

Great shot. He does look pitiful. Glad you were able to 'scare' away the villains.
