Juvenile Survival is one of the measures of bobcat “health”.  As this data shows, juvenile survival has been problematic the past 15 years in Nevada. While the reader can see what assumptions were used to calculate percentages (based upon the California Fish and Game Department formula), the Nevada Department of Wildlife has no such assumptions that have ever been made public so accountability for its management/non-management has never been possible.
