SAN DIEGO - A woman claims she spotted a bobcat lurking in her front yard in Normal Heights area.

The sighting happened Friday night in the 4900 block of Hawley Boulevard in the Normal Heights area. Angelica Mendoza said she was walking her dog around 9 p.m. when the cat appeared.

"It started walking towards me but by the way it walked I noticed it wasn’t a normal cat," said Mendoza.

"It stood there and it hissed at me so that’s when I started back inside the house," said Mendoza. "Usually when a cat in the neighborhood approaches you they’re scared of you, this one wasn’t."

Neighbors in the area say critters aren't uncommon with a nearby canyon, but claim it's been more than a year since a bobcat has been sighted.

"They’re here and you have to be careful and you can’t leave your pets out," she said.
