Professor David Cassuto on bobcat sightings in Westchester

David N. Cassuto, JD, PhD, is expert in animal law, board member of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and founder of the Animal Blawg (animalblawg.wordpress.com), a blog focusing on animal law, policy and ethics.

Any actions taken should account for both the opportunity and the risks that such animals embody. Those actions should also comply with the law. It bears remembering that car travel presents a far greater danger to people than this cat ever will. So, if there is indeed a mountain lion in our midst, we should celebrate nature’s resilience even as we take common sense measures to safeguard both people and the cat(s).”
