A golfer and a horse are recovering after being injured in separate bobcat attacks in CT on Thursday morning.

"It jumped on his back".

A bobcat that attacked a golfer in CT was beaten off by golf clubs before environmental police tracked it down and shot it.

The feral feline was tracked down and found hissing inside a drainage pipe not long after attacking the golfer.

'They thought it was dead, ' Dwyer told reporters.

The injured individual, whose "condition is unknown", was taken for medical treatment after sustaining lacerations, DEEP said.

Borths", said Daniel Marenda, a program director at the National Science Foundation, which funded this research. At the same time, the ancient relatives of modern day cats, hyenas and dogs began to filter south.

The same bobcat is believed to have mauled a horse less than a mile away from the casino golf course earlier the same morning, slashing the animal's eye and neck, before running off.

A golfer in CT was taken to the hospital on Thursday after enduring a bobcat attack at the course, officials said. Attacks on humans are extremely rare, according to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

Osowski told WFSB that she came out of the house when the attack was happening and started screaming to thwart the bobcat.

The bobcat eventually ran off and she called 911. DEEP officers later tracked down the bobcat after following its footprints.

The bobcat is being tested for rabies.

"In my 20 years with the DEEP I've only had three rabid bobcats, said Dwyer". The last report of a bobcat attack in the state was in Bozrah in August 2014.
