Photos: Sarasota back yard visited by bobcat

  • 0

SARASOTA, Fla. -- An ABC 7 viewer shared photos with us of what appears to be a bobcat in a Sarasota back yard.

Barbara Voegelin sent in these photos from the Camelot East neighborhood off Clark Road just east of I-75, and show the feline lounging in a tree, and apparently trying to get to the bird feeder.

Bobcats are found widely distributed throughout North America and are found in a wide variety of Florida habitats.  They have a maximum adult weight of only 35 pounds.

In you have photos of interesting sights from around the Suncoast, we'd love for you to share them with us at!
