(UPI) A Missouri hunter captured video of a tense confrontation between a bobcat and a deer that nearly trampled the wild feline.
The hunter said he was out with his son earlier this month in the Fredericktown area when he decided to take video of a bobcat he spotted wandering nearby.
"As the bobcat approached us a doe came out and seemed to be following the bobcat," the man wrote.
"I thought the cat was going to jump in our blind so scared it off by whispering to it. It scared the bobcat off and sent him towards the doe. The doe charged the bobcat and tried to stomp it! Nobody saw the twist at the ending coming!" the hunter said.
The video ends with both animals escaping, apparently unharmed.Copyright 2017 by United Press International
