How do you remove sap from a bobcat hide without ruining it. Thank you very much Adrian

what do you mean by sap?
I squirt a little acetone on those spots and they comb right out.I would bet that Coleman fuel,laquer thinner,mineral spirits would probably work also.As always,be careful with flammable liquids.
ADRIAN, I WOULD TRY BABY OIL FIRST BEFORE TRYING ALL THOSE FLAMMABLE/EXPLOSIVE LIQUIDS.
D.T. is correct in the less volatile methods. Put a paper towel around the sap and spray some WD40 on it. Will slip right off. Blow dry and you're done.
Seriously, peanut butter will get it out.
Actually it's the oil in the paeanut butter that softens the hair and the sap should actually slip off of the hair. By the way this also works on liquid nails in hair and drywall adhesive in hair(human hair)...yes by personal experiences.
Lest you want the peanut butter aroma though, try peanut oil.
Baby oil will work also...
