The film makers are trying to finish the project and release the movie prior to a March 18th hearing.

As a result of the bobcat population increase in recent years, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission approved hunting of the animal for this year. Previously, it had been outlawed for the past two decades.

The measure will now be debated at a March 18th hearing.

Protect The Bobcat: A New Hampshire Wildlife Story,’ is being produced by Brenda Olsen. She says just received a permit to film the documentary on the state house lawn.

Filming will begin Saturday at 10am.
