Bobcat Attacks Conn. Family

State environmental police euthanized a bobcat and it’s being tested for rabies after it attacked a couple and their baby in Lebanon, Connecticut Sunday.

Summer and Tom Berube told WVIT-TV that they were walking and holding their newborn daughter when the bobcat ran toward them. Tom Berube says he grabbed a mailbox and used it to knock down the bobcat as it jumped at him. They flagged down a passing driver and called police.

State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officers euthanized the bobcat, which was taken to a state lab for testing.

Police say it may be the same bobcat that attacked a woman in neighboring Bozrah Saturday. She was treated at a hospital.

A bobcat was photographed outside a home on Crum Elbow Road, near Reach Out Church, in Hyde Park on March, 3rd of this year and there have been many other sightings in our area.
