I've seen bobcats in town in Tucson, in more suburban neighborhoods, and on at least one golf course.  I've seen pictures of a family of then on a coworker's wall around their yard.  Never even occurred to me that they needed trapping!  The most interesting one was when my son said "Stop!" in the middle of my backswing, and he NEVER does that!  Maybe 125 yards out, there was a bobcat meandering across the fairway.

This big girl had made a meal out of several of the homeowners' pets that surround the course. A least one of those instances, the owners were in attendance to watch their little shitzu disappear over the wall in her mouth. That's not going to fly, and it cost her her life. They had to put her down.

Our two local courses have at times have had mtn lions, bobcats, various snakes, coyotes, tortoises, gila monsters, badgers, feral cats, wild dogs,  and what ever else lives in the mojave desert. 

The predators are there for the lizards, quail, rabbits, and other rodent populations that live on the courses. 

Both courses are surrounded on two, or three sides by homes, with the other sides open to the wild desert. 

The only real danger is the various rattlesnakes that frequent the area. Especially the mojave greens. Balls lost in the dense bushes, are usually left there. 

It is legal for local home owners to kill any wild animal/reptile deemed dangerous to humans, that should show up in their neighborhood. Animal control handles the disposal of the carcass.

Tortoises, bull, and king snakes are not deemed dangerous to humans.

Saw a bobcat recently get a mouse near the 18th tee of a local course. The course surrounds a river tributary. Lots of critters live in our river bottoms. We see some BIG snakes! Best, -Marv

Just let those bobcats mosey on down the water’s edge along our Florida ponds....
