On June 8, 2017 at 17.50 Hrs, Cpl. David Marut and Patrol Officer Andrew Tesori responded to a private residence on Coleman Road for a report of a Bobcat attacking a dog.  Upon arrival, the homeowner indicated her dog had been attacked and injured by a Bobcat in the rear yard.  The homeowner indicated she transported the dog to her veterinarian for medical assistance prior to police arrival.  A check of the area by both officers for the Bobcat yielded negative results.  
 
A short later at 18.24 Hrs, both officers received a second call regarding a Bobcat at a private residence on Naughright Road.  Upon arrival Cpl. Marut and PO Tesori were able to locate and isolate the Bobcat in a barn. The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife were notified and responded to the scene.  Upon arrival of the Conservation Officer the Bobcat was captured with the use of a snare.  The Conservation Officer later advised that the Bobcat displayed early signs of possibly having the rabies infection.  The Bobcat was removed by New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife for observation and possible testing.
