(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Photographer Randy Robbins set up a trail camera in Northern California that took a daytime photograph of a “chunky” bobcat, and Facebook users praised the obese animal for looking “beautiful” and “very healthy.”
Robbins missed seeing the hefty bobcat in person, but he was happy to catch the “fairly rare daytime shot,” the News Tribune reported.
“My assumption is that it was watching me pull up in my Jeep, and made a quick exit when it saw me coming,” Robbins said after looking at the picture’s timestamp. “Mountain lion kill according to nearby trail camera…no lion last night, it must have moved on, but this guy is cleaning up.”
The public’s response to the chunky bobcat helps demonstrate the dangers of the body-positivity trend, which treats obesity as normal and healthy despite its clear association with disease and lower life expectancy.
Robbins estimated that the bobcat weighs between 30 and 35 pounds, while the average bobcat weighs about 21 pounds, though large bobcats have reached up to 49 pounds.
Facebook users wanted to know if the bobcat was a pregnant female or a “chunky fellow.”
“That’s a very healthy cat, possibly pregnant momma?” a user asked.
Wildlife groups looked at an image of the bobcat from behind and concluded that it is “not a pregnant female but a hefty male.”
The body positivity movement has grown and transformed in recent years as it has allied with woke ideology.
The Left has framed fatness as being somehow connected to transgenderism and anti-racism, encouraging more overweight people to become complacent in their obesity as a way to fight against white supremacy.

Body positivity has become more popular because America has become fatter.
In 2020, about 42% of Americans were obese. Half of black Americans were obese.
As the overall obesity rate barrels toward 50%, the body positivity movement will prevent a critical analysis of the root causes of obesity–industrial monocropping, seed oils, toxic food additives, high fructose corn syrup and other added sugars, and a sedentary lifestyle–and instead celebrate obesity because it somehow opposes the white patriarchy.
