Bobcat sighting in BridleTrails neighborhood

Bobcat Today we received this letter from a reader about a bobcat sighting in the Bridle Trails neighborhood:

"I heard from my brother who lives in Bridle Trails that he saw a Bobcat pass through his backyard, not far from the State Park.  He says his whole family saw it and it had the distinctive short bushy tail, and he’s heard others have spotted it as well.  I don’t know how rare that is, but I thought I’d pass it on."  - George Hu

Thanks for passing on this information, George. We are fortunate to live so close to wilderness and encounters with wildlife are more frequent every year. Our neighborhood, Norkirk, is adjacent to Forbes Creek and we occasionally coyotes on our street at night looking for food and sometimes attacking cats.
