WATCH: 5 bobcats spotted in Jefferson County backyard


The bobcats can be seen hanging around a baby swing and investigating nearby bushes.

JEFFERSON, Colo. — One Jefferson County resident was in for a surprise when they looked outside and found five bobcats hanging out in their backyard!

In a video posted to social media, Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) explained bobcats in urban settings will generally concentrate where their prey is most abundant such as vegetation growing near rivers, streams, lakes, lagoons, etc.

Although CPW counted four bobcats, other people say they see five! How many do you see?
