OVERLAND PARK, Kansas - An Overland Park homeowner saw a bobcat in his backyard Monday
Chuck Sinks saw the bobcat around 9:30 a.m. in the 9700 block of
West 144th Terrace. He took a couple photos of the bobcat.
Sinks said the bobcat was around long enough to stroll through
his yard and into the neighbors’ backyards.
Sinks said the bobcat acted like he owned the area.
Eric Thompson with Animal Control says there are quite a few
bobcats in that area. He said the last report of a bobcat was three
to four months ago near 119th and Quivira.
Thompson says bobcats usually stay close to the golf courses and
creeks. They are usually out early in the morning or late at night.
They naturally prey on rabbits and mice and not likely to attack a
small dog or cat.
