Residents in the Ocean Ranch community saw a good-sized bobcat in the community off Bear Brand Road and Golden Lantern on Wednesday around 5:30 p.m.
Security guard Bob said: "It was just sauntering around the streets, it wasn't in any hurry to go anywhere soon. It had huge legs, and looked like it had been cared for pretty good."
The cat was spotted near the 0 block of Dorchester Green and Bear Brand roads, and eventually scaled the 6-foot wall of one of the homeowner's backyard.
The bobcat was not seen after that, said the seccurity guard, however, Orange County Animal Control was called. As of 6 p.m. there was no further information on the cat's whereabouts. The agency cautioned pet owners to keep their pets indoors this evening and to always be aware of where you are walking your pet. Also, never leave your pet unattended or alone.
In addition, keep small children in close range.
