Bobcat spotted climbing backyard fence in Cardiff

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - People in Cardiff are on alert after a big bobcat was spotted in a backyard Thursday evening. 

The bobcat was spotted on Freda Lane just east of Interstate 5. 

A CBS 8 viewer quickly captured video on his cell phone of the bobcat climbing over the top of his fence in his backyard. He said at first he wasn't sure if it was a mountain lion or a bobcat.

Bobcat sightings aren't unusual here. Back in April, a Sabre Springs neighborhood was on edge after a bobcat family was spotted in a neighbor's backyard.

The city says they get reports of bobcats from time to time. They recommend you keep your distance, especially if you have small pets.
