A bobcat jumped a fence, entered this Dallas family’s backyard, and attacked a pet dog.
This footage comes from Texas, where a Dallas-area family has unfortunately lost a family pet to a bobcat attack.
The video might be unsettling for some, but is a stark reminder of the constant conflict developed when homes, humans, and pets intermix with wild animals.
The Richardson, Texas homeowner saw the bobcat jump a ledge and bound into the backyard, only to encounter two small dogs eager to defend their territory. The bobcat quicker got the better of one, and now the owner is afraid to let his other dog outside.
The video and subsequent news report is intended to help raise awareness for others in the area, as well as begin an eradication process to trap bobcats. One has already been trapped.
