The wild feline bounced when it hit the ground

Bobcats are fierce and agile hunters, and this video is proof. In the footage, posted to the StevenSteph YouTube channel, you see a bobcat chasing a squirrel on what appears to be a golf course. The squirrel then scurries up a tree with the bobcat right behind it. In a desperate effort to escape, the squirrel leaps from the top of the tree. Surprisingly, the much larger bobcat does the same, landing with a bounce, but apparently no worse for wear. The squirrel then scampers up the tree again, and the footage ends with the cat staring up at the squirrel.
