SACRAMENTO - An East Sacramento woman looked out to find a bobcat in her backyard Monday afternoon.
"I'm in the bathroom looking through the window, and I see a large, what I think is a cat," said Julie, who lives on 39th Street near H Street in Sacramento.
Julie, who did not want to use her last name, said as she watched the animal, it looked her in the eye, then jumped on top of her fence, then down the other side into her neighbor's backyard.
"It's the way that it jumped. It wasn't like normal. It was very graceful," Julie explained. "Sat up there, looked at me for a minute."
Julie called police, who then called fish and game officials. Officials agreed Julie probably saw a bobcat. Fish and game wardens said there have been other possible sightings about a mile south along Folsom Boulevard.
