This is what it looks like when nature grabs life by the horns, and the hunter becomes the hunted.
In this video that is now a year old but still popping up all over the internet, we present a bobcat hunting a human.
The camera was rolling when a dude out looking for turkey realized that a bobcat was lurking in the woods and calculating its next move — towards him.
We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t help soiling ourselves on this guy’s behalf.
As Wide Open Spaces noted, bobcats are “used to hunting small prey” and “[b]ecause of that, they develop a sharp eye and a keen sense of movement.” This hunter’s camouflage was no match for this bobcat’s keen sense.
In its natural habitat, we see the wild animal, coolly and calmly inching closer with a look no one would want any part of. Then it prepared to pounce.
Don’t be fooled by that tail-wagging bobcat. It meant business and fired a warning shot by charging at the hunter.
As you can tell by the man’s heavy breathing, he was terrified and was then and there thanking his lucky stars that this was not the end.
