"Well, I was in the house when I heard all this ruckus outside."
It was about 7:30 a.m.
Naomi Hendrix went wasn't sure what it was.
So she went out to the side of her house where she keeps her pet rabbits named "Bob Marley" and "Blackie."
"So then I saw the bobcat. Right here. In my front yard!"
Naomi didn't exactly know what to do... But she knew she didn't want to get attacked by a bobcat.
So she snuck outside, and took this video of it.
The bobcat had killed one of the rabbits, the one named "Bob Marley," in the front yard, where Naomi's grandkids sometimes play.
"And then he carried his prey over into this area and you can see the spot underneath the bush right here where the fur is."
Naomi didn't want it to go after her other rabbit.
So she tried to scare it off.
It jumped a 10 ft. fence at the side of her house.
"Wonder if you can still see the markings..."
Police, the SPCA, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife were all called out.
Officials then chased the bobcat into a neighbor's back yard, where they tranquilized it.
The bobcat later came to, and was released into a more habitable environment near Lost Lake Park...
Far from Naomi Hendrix's place...
Dan Fidler, Dept. of Fish & Game: "There's some open agriculture within a couple miles, so chances are it worked in that area and by happenstance worked its way into that particular area."
The Department of Fish and Wildlife says it's not uncommon for wild animals to hang out on the outer edges of town.
Officials say it is rare for them to wander into the middle of town, but not surprising.
This was a 1 yr. old, male bobcat, about 10 to 15 pounds...
The Department of Fish and Game says in-town sightings are rare, about once or twice a year...
So what should you do if you ever spot a wild animal in your back yard?
Authorities say not to approach it, and to call the Department of Fish and Game right away.
