MOUNT WASHINGTON — After reading our post about the first photographic evidence of a bobcat in Elysian Park, Tim DeRoche of Mount Washington offered up proof that at least one of the urban bobcats had made a home for itself in the area of Elyria Canyon Park.
The photo was taken in August on the stairs near his home next to the Wollam Street trailhead. It’s one of several bobcat photos DeRoche has taken.
“Perhaps they are expanding their range due to shortages of food or water,” he said.
Got an urban bobcat photo? Wildlife biologists would like to know about it. You can submit photos and other information to the Backyard Bobcat. The Natural History Museum is also accepting photos and information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by tagging photos in social media with #NatureinLA.
