NEWSLINK: Reports of bobcat sightings sought

Rhode Island, like the rest of the region, may be seeing a rise in the bobcat population – and South Kingstown seems to be a hotbed for the big cats.

The University or Rhode Island has teamed up with the state’s Department of Environmental Management to collect basic information on the species and its numbers in the area. For the last 10 years, the DEM has been keeping track of reported sightings and roadkill incidents involving bobcats in the state. According to URI research associate Amy Mayer, a large number of those sightings have been in South County, especially the Matunuck area.
