SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- A homeowner in canyon country was surprised Monday by a wild bobcat lurking around in her backyard bushes.
The homeowner said the big cat had killed a rabbit and she called the sheriff's department, who then alerted animal control. Two of the officers went to the home and were able to put the animal on a leash and swing it over the backyard wall. From there, they put the animal in their truck and hauled it away.
The animal was believed to be an approximately 50-to-75-pound bobcat.
