Long tailed wildcats appear to migrate en masse
A neighbor, whose family have lived in the Nacoochee Valley since the late 1800s, was getting tires on his truck at the same time as I was getting two tires on my old Explorer. I had noticed threads appearing where there used to be treads. LOL I asked him about the long tailed, spotted wildcat I saw earlier in the week. He said, “yes” he had been seeing them for at least 40 years. He said that two were hit by cars in northwestern South Carolina, yet the rangers there, like in other states, deny that they are a species of medium sized wild felines that the biologists missed. He told me something interesting. These wild cats seem to migrate across the Southeast in waves. They don’t stay in one region for very long. I told him that I had never heard of a wild feline that migrated in herds, but it made sense. The species is never in any one spot long enough for bureaucrats to admit their existence. Far out!
