Mike Mayou of Duluth is a super talented photographer and with the help of his drone he was able to get awfully close to a group of bobcats exploring the frozen St. Louis River. The video he took has gone viral and according to Mayou's Facebook Page he said surprisingly they did not seem to mind the drone at all.

Mayou also stated that he did not want to disclose exactly where on the St. Louis River he found them because he does not want groups of people looking for them and disturbing them. Thankfully people like him exist because you know that people would try to hunt them down for more pictures or video. You can see through his pictures and the video that he is obviously someone who is very respectful of nature.

I must say I was kind of taken aback that bobcats exists in this area. But I also am not the most knowledgeable nature observer around considering the fact I still see deer and think they are fake after living in Duluth for the past 20 years.

The bobcat is the most common of Minnesota's three native wildcat species (the others are the cougar and Canada lynx). About 2,000 bobcats live in northern Minnesota. Few humans ever see a bobcat in the wild.


This makes it even more incredible that three of them were seen together at one time. Hopefully they will live a long healthy life running free and not be disturbed or hurt by humans or technology pushing in on their territory.
