Bobcat spotted near DeWitt Center

-A +A
A Placer County employee likely spotted a bobcat in the area of the DeWitt Center Friday morning. Wildlife specialists were dispatched to an area of undeveloped land around the county government center, but could not locate the animal or any tracks. Although it was first reported as a mountain lion, the description given by the employee was consistent with that of a bobcat, said Christine Turner, agricultural commissioner for Placer County. “Bobcats and mountain lions are extremely elusive, so the fact that it was sighted at all is amazing,” she said. — Michelle Miller-Carl
