WE ARE ALL DESIGNIST NOW:

Why are bobcats returning to New Hampshire? : University of New Hampshire wildlife biologists are investigating why the state's bobcat population has rebounded, despite a sharp drop in rabbits and other typical prey. (Gretel Kauffman, OCTOBER 17, 2016, CS Monitor)

According to a study by UNH researchers, bobcats have made a dramatic return to New Hampshire since nearly going extinct in the 1980s. In 1989, fewer than 150 were thought to have survived. 

One theory for the bobcats' comeback is that the animals have adapted their diets to feed on different types of prey, such as turkeys or squirrels, biologists said. Another possible factor could be the state ending its last bobcat hunting season in 1989. 

Sublime.
