Although normally a nighttime huner, this bobcat (Lynx rufus) is slowly and silently stalking a ruffed grouse in the early morning light. Like most cats, bobcats hunt alone, relying on stealth and ambush to capture prey. Unlike members of the dog family, cats rely on eyesight and hearing rather than scent to locate their prey. Bobcats hunt rabbits, young deer and many rodents, including squirrels. They have been known to kill adult deer and even other carnivores such as foxes, house cats and weasels.

This diorama depicts the St. Croix River valley near Afton, Minnesota. Bobcats are now most common in northeastern Minnesota.

The foreground of this panorama is by John A. Jarosz. The background painting is by Francis Lee Jaques (pronounced "JAY-kwees").
