Neighborhood cat stands up to a BOBCAT in New Mexico

  • Security camera footage captured a bobcat in a family’s front yard in a metropolitan area of Albuquerque
  • The big animal came face-to-face with a neighborhood house cat
  • The pet stood its ground and then chased the bobcat away

Residents of a northwest Albuquerque, New Mexico, neighborhood had quite the surprise when they looked out their windows and saw a bobcat roaming the streets. 

The animal came face-to-face with its own surprise when it ran into a neighbor’s cat.

The pet, named Leo, had a stare down with the wild animal.  

Leo stood his ground in front of the much larger cat.

The homeowner’s husband went outside and startled the bobcat, which then ran away.

The pet then bravely chases the bobcat. Leo was spotted later in the day unharmed.

The bobcat seemed right at home on the paved streets, walking around like it owned the place.

A woman didn’t believe her husband when he came inside and told her that a bobcat was outside on Wednesday evening. 

 ‘My husband came in and said there’s a bobcat in the front yard. Of course, I didn’t believe him,’ Anita Bruce said to KOAT 7.  

‘I went to the security cameras and then I saw this guy walking across. And sure enough, big bobcat,’ she said.
