Series of snaps shows park's bobcat is beefing up

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Less than a quarter-mile from one of the country's busiest freeways lies a small oasis for an abundance of wildlife at the Torrey Pines State Nature Reserve. One of the most impressive creatures there is growing right before our eyes.

Patricia Master is with the Torrey Pines Association, who installed a wild cam in the preserve in the spring, but it took more than a month to get an image of a top predator.

But then came a bigger surprise -- there were two bobcats. Over the summer, the bobcats have done well

The blending of the wetlands and the coastal chaparral is what draws these animals to keep the fine balance nature needs.

If you'd like to see it for yourself, visit the reserve around sunrise or sunset, when the animals are most active.
