Bobcat wandering Britannia's residential streets caught on camera
Not the first time the wild cats have been spotted in southwest Calgary
Britannia resident Janice Parker spotted a bobcat roaming the streets of the southwest Calgary neighbourhood Friday and captured a few photos of the wild animal in the relatively urban environment.
Parker said she noticed the bobcat hiding under a tree while pulling into her driveway near the corner of Coronation Drive and Madison Avenue.
The animal then walked across the street and into a neighbour's yard, she said.
Parker managed to snap a couple of pictures of the bobcat, which isn't the first one to be seen in the area.
"A mother and two babies have been seen at least three times in the past month on my street," she told CBC News Calgary.
Bobcats were also spotted with some frequency last year in communities further south.
