LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV)- Wildlife is not an unusual sight for homeowners in the River Ridge area of Little Rock, but a recent photo has created quite a buzz after it was posted on the popular Forbidden Hillcrest social media site.
River Ridge resident Joe Neal had quite a scare when he captured the photo of a bobcat roaming through his backyard earlier in the week.
Bart Mazzanti has cared for the Neal's lawn for several years.
"We actually saw the paw prints, but that's all I've ever seen."
The recent sighting of the large cat doesn't alarm him at all. Mazzanti says wildlife is just a part of living near the river.
"In terms of being cautious, they're not looking for you, they're looking for something that's easier than you. If you're there just be aware."
Debbie Thompson at The Little Rock Zoo agrees.
