A Lakeside woman is warning her neighbors after she says she spotted coyotes and bobcats in her backyard.

Susan Martin uploaded surveillance video to YouTube showing a coyote racing around her chicken coop Saturday morning. In the past 10 days, she's seen 3 coyotes and a bobcat. She says she saw another bobcat in her yard within the last three months. 

Neighbor David Moore is concerned for the safety of his two young boys who play outside.

"Like I said, just keep my eye out and make sure I don't see them on the property," said Moore. "I don't want the kids running around with a wild animal."

Project Wildlife says they have not seen an increase in bobcat sightings in the Lakeside area.
