What a Dutch wildcat ate


This video is about European wildcats in Bavaria in Germany.

Since a few years ago, wildcats are back in the Netherlands; where they had been extinct for a long time.

Translated from Dutch daily De Volkskrant, 10 December 2017:

A wildcat that was killed in February at the village of Nijswiller in the south of Limburg province had nine prey animals in his stomach: five wood mice, two yellow-necked wood mice, one harvest mouse and one common vole. He was not only well fed with a varied menu, but also very healthy and only had bad luck when crossing the N281 highway.
