Not so foolish to carry a weapon into the woods, is it? I've heard wolves and coyotes are creating hybrids in CT that stalk entire groups of people and are quite aggressive.

The worst threat is rabid animals and deer (moose!) in rut. Coyotes have not been reported as attacking people and this bob cat situation is pretty unusual.

I heard it had rabies.

This was a sick animal and a very unusual occurrence. I once had a bobcat close-encounter, turned a corner by a stream and there he was ust a few feet away but I raised my arms and yelled and he took off.

(Walking today, I came across a dead young raccoon with several porcupine needles in it's muzzle, dead from infection.)
