Bobcat Safety

Bobcats Do’s and Dont’s

Bobcats are thriving in urban areas throughout the United States. Because of their small size, bobcats are NOT a threat to humans of any age. Bobcats eat rats, mice, rabbits, squirrels and birds. It’s normal for bobcats to be active both during daylight hours and at night.

Bobcats live in varied habitats. In urban areas, they often den under decks and sheds. In undeveloped areas, they den in rock crevices and hollow logs. Their territories vary with food supply, averaging 4 to 15 square miles.

If you share your yard peacefully with a resident bobcat, it will provide excellent, chemical-free rodent control. For those who prefer not to see a bobcat in their yard, here are three simple, effective steps:

1.Never leave pet food outside and restrict the use of birdseed. Bobcats are attracted to the birds and rodents that eat at bird feeders.

2.If you have a deck or shed, install an L-shaped barrier around the base to prevent the bobcat from denning underneath it.

3.If a bobcat enters your yard, actively discourage it by making loud noises, throwing sticks or spraying water from a garden hose to teach it to stay away.

Trapping and relocating bobcats is neither humane nor effective:

  • Several studies have shown that relocated animals have a low rate of survival.
  • If the relocated animal is a lactating female, the juveniles left behind will die of starvation.
  • Trapped animals are quickly replaced by others from surrounding areas, especially in residential neighborhoods. Waste Management (WM) Customer Serve: 1(800) 772-8653.

Pyro Shows of Texas has been hired to produce a professional firework show starting at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday July 4th and lasting about 20 minutes. Pyro Shows of Texas is the same company that has produced Kaboom Town in Addison, so it should be an awesome display! Fireworks will be launched from the open field along FM 423 just north of the Frisco Ranch neighborhood and should be viewable from most portions of Frisco Ranch and Frisco Hills right from your own yard!

This show is being coordinated with local police and fire services to ensure a safe display of fireworks and protect against any potential fire or safety hazards. We ask that anyone who was planning on purchasing and discharging fireworks in the district this year to please save your money and enjoy what should be an awesome show.
