Wildlife officer tries to set little bobcat kitten free. Feline’s comeback is stealing hearts everywhere

A very cranky little bobcat kitten, to whom wildlife officials from the Center for Biodiversity referred as “Mr. Murderbritches”, hissed, growled and swatted at the helpful humans who were trying to his transport carrier to set him free. Once the men got the carrier open, however, the irascible little feline felt the need to threaten them one more time before reluctantly releasing himself back into the wild.

After Mr. Murderbritches was spotted prowling after someone’s pet chickens near Kanarraville, Utah, in November, the officers were called in to relocate him to a less populated area. Officers safely caught the young cat with no problems — except that they now had a very angry, very tiny kitty on their hands.

After seeing the clip of Mr. Murderbritches, the Center for Biological Diversity created its own version — complete with subtitles that translate the cat’s growls into sassy, aggressive remarks.

“Watch these wildlife officials struggle to stay alive as they release the world’s most badass bobcat kitten back into the wild,” the group tweeted. Over 750,000 people have since watched the silly video.

Bobcats are very timid animals and typically avoid humans at all costs — which would explain why Mr. Murderbritches was so annoyed with the officers. Luckily, that’s just the response healthy bobcats should have in the presence of people‚ even pint-sized kittens like Mr. Murderbritches.
