CAPE GIRARDEAU (AP) - So a rabbit and a bobcat get into a golf cart ... It sounds like the beginning of a joke -- but the teeth and claws were real, as Cape Girardeau water plant worker Mitch Walter found out. Walter is an operator at the Cape Rock Water Treatment Plant, where his duties include inspecting the property in a golf cart. As he backed the cart away from the building Tuesday night, a rabbit leaped into the passenger side -- followed by a 25-pound bobcat. The rabbit then jumped back out, leaving Walter alone with a large, frightened feline.
"The cat went from a sleek predator after fast food to a ball of fur trying to jump through the windshield of the golf cart." Walter said.
