Bobcats Spotted on Highland Oaks Rooftop Wednesday Morning

No injuries were reported, and no damage was done by the family of bobcats.

A bobcat and her trio of cubs were seen in the 1900 block of Highland Oaks Drive, catching some sleep on someone's rooftop before heading back into the wilderness, according to the Arcadia Police Department. 

The bobcat family was spotted around 8 a.m. Wednesday morning and left about 45 minutes later, according to Sgt. Brian Ortiz of the Arcadia Police Department. There were no injuries or damages to any property reported, nor were there any control units deployed to tranquilize or contain the animals.

"They left of their own accord," Ortiz said.

I saw the bobcat last night around 8pm in my backyard roaming around 9/30/12. I live off of canyon road in the highland oaks area.

It was a mountain lion, not a bobcat.

Today 10/14/12 my daughter said she saw a cheetah in our back yard, I assume it was a bobcat. After showing her photos online of a bobcat she realized that's what it was, she's five and a half. I live on Canyon Rd in Arcadia and back up to Angeles Crest. From her description it appears to have been a cub.
