Brooklyn, Wisconsin is in Dance County. It is about 30 minutes northwest of Janesville. This isn't a very big town with a population of about 900+, so when something like THIS happens...it's BIG news. Who am I kidding, a freakin' Bobcat running through any backyard is huge news!

This Brooklyn, Wisconsin was around the table for a late dinner about 8pm...When they noticed the rare animal making it's way around their backyard. So in this situation, what would be the first thing YOU do?

OK, head count...all the kids are here. Pets, oh god the pets! Well that is what this family did, they hurried to grab their two cats and a chihuahua...That woulda made for a nice Bobcat snack I'm guessing.

No one was hurt during this Bobcat sighting, all pets were accounted for and the scary hairy one took off...For now.
