The wildlife in Echo Park – and we are not talking about the crowds during Margarita Wednesday’s at Barragan’s – is getting wilder. At least two residents have spotted what looks like a bob cat wandering the hills and streets, according to a posting on the Echo Elysian Forum.
looked down in the vacant field behind our house (between Sargent and
Palmer). Have seen a number of coyotes that hang out there and thought
what I was seeing was one – it was not. Similar color but definitely a
feline – too small for a mountain lion but about 4 times larger than a
house cat and the coloring wasn’t right, so I’m thinking Bob Cat –
never seen one down there before but than haven’t seen the coyotes for
a few days – maybe that’s why!”
