We have received reports of a bobcat sighting in Town. Even though bobcats have been in this area for decades, they typically shy away from humans. Bobcats that appear to be ill should be reported to Keller Animal Services when seen, do not approach them.
The following precautions can help people and wildlife such as bobcats to safely co-exist:
• Never intentionally feed wildlife.
• Don’t feed wildlife accidentally. Keep pet food and water inside. Keep garbage securely stored, especially if it is put on the curb for collection.
• Keep an eye on your pets. Walk pets on a leash and accompany them outside, especially at night.
• Use deterrents like noisemakers, clapping and waving your arms, and shouting. If those don’t work, throw a small object like a tennis ball near the animal to startle it.
Help us keep wildlife wild.
