Rated as Least Concern list on the IUCN Red List, the bobcat is one of the few success stories of wild cats surviving in today's world. Highly adaptable in both habitat and prey, and not repelled by living close to humans, as many as 1 million live across the United States and southern Canada today. As many as 80,000 are trapped for their fur every year, with 37 states allowing this. They are found in deserts, mountains, forests, and swamps. Their average weight is only 20 pounds, and 80 percent of their diet is rabbits.
