An animal of deciduous forest regions that is often confused with stray housecats or small dogs. They are rather tame looking felines that have the intelligence of rabbits or rodents. Scientists have been in awe of the animals' resilience considering their lack of intellect and ineptitude for survival.
A bearcat's most feared enemy is the rhino. These species often come into contact in small areas of New England. Such encounters frequently result in complete demoralization of the bearcat population and a big red stampede.
