Is there any research on wolf and bobcat interactions?

I'm studying interactions between North American predators, specifically wolves, coyotes and bobcats. There's evidence from data I've collected from game cameras that suggests a significant interaction between wolves and bobcats. However, I haven't found published literature or reports on interactions between these two carnivores besides a paper by Stenlund (1955) that suggests bobcats may benefit from scavenging wolf kills. Does anyone know of any publications in peer-reviewed literature, government reports or even reliable observations from biologists in the field on interactions between wolves and bobcats? Thank you!

These links may help you. The first one is not free though you may have access through your school. The second can be viewed online and discusses how competition for food does not impact wolves but may impact Lynx (Bobcats) behavior for foraging. https://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/Z09-143#.XWnvK-hKiU lhttps://www.wolveninnederland.nl/sites/default/files/lit-research-report-2013-03-18-revised.pdf
