    For almost a century, bobcats faced a bounty in Wisconsin, and their numbers dwindled to less than 1,500 in 1980. We talk with a furbearer expert at the state Department of Natural Resources about how the animals made a comeback, how they’re hunted or trapped, and what people should know about them.
