ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) - North San Diego County neighbors are spreading the word about a bobcat seen near pets in their community.

The sightings come after a woman's dog was attacked by what an expert told 10News was likely a bobcat.

A woman photographed the bobcat this week through her screen door.  Her toddler son and cat were on the other side of the screen.

Other neighbors also took pictures of the bobcat.
