Add bobcats to the list of brazen wildlife sightings

La Cañada Flintridge residents welcomed a visit from yet another member of the animal kingdom last Sunday when a bobcat took a daytime stroll down Melinda Thompson and Bill Scherkey’s front porch on the 1400 block of Flanders Road.

With multiple sightings of coyotes and bears already having occurred this year, bobcats are just the latest critter to make their presence known.

Glenn Houser of the 5000 block of Jarvis Avenue also encountered a bobcat on the morning of Aug. 9.

Ricky Whitman of the Pasadena Humane Society said that bobcats are a common sight in foothill areas.

“Bobcats are not unusual to see, and frequently the [reported] mountain lion sightings are bobcats,” said Whitman.

Reports of mountain lions in Burbank, bears in the foothills and coyotes in North Glendale have come at a regular pace this summer.  VALLEY SUN
