Caught on Camera: Bobcat's Backyard Visit
An Arizona woman enjoying a relaxing morning had quite a surprise when she spotted a bobcat sitting in her backyard.
Bobcats are common throughout Arizona at all elevations, especially in rimrock and chaparral areas, and in the outskirts of urban areas where food is readily available.
Bobcats are generally seen alone, but groups may consist of mating pairs, siblings, or mothers with kittens.
Bobcats are most active around sunset and sunrise, and it is not uncommon to find one napping under a shrub in a brushy backyard.
If you see a bobcat near your home, there is no need to panic. Bobcats rarely attack people. Bobcats may visit an area to find food, water, shelter, or the space they need to live.
