Bobcats are common in CT and found in most towns throughout the state. Officials say that these type of attacks are specifically rare, and in the event that they do happen, it's usually because the animal is rabid.

Christopher Dwyer told the Hartford Courant that the feral feline jumped on the golfer's back while he and his friends were on the course.

Following the incident, DEEP Environmental Conservation Police managed to locate the bobcat and humanely euthanized it, according to officials.
