TIJERAS, N.M. -- A Tijeras resident has a stare-down encounter with an area bobcat.


Bill Bentzen sent this video to KOB and writes, "I was just sitting outside of my front door about 6:30 p.m. when in the corner of my eye I saw this bobcat coming my way. It didn't notice me at first but as it passed it noticed me. We had a little stare down but it lost interest in me and went on its way. "

Bobcats are known to dine on rodents, rabbits, quail, deer and insects, according to New Mexico Game and Fish. If you encounter a bobcat in your yard, stay indoors and leave it alone. Make sure to keep pets and children safely away.
