A user of the social media platform Nextdoor.com, which connects users with neighbors based on their home addresses, has alerted people in his Burlington neighborhood of multiple bobcat sightings.
The Nextdoor user said that in the past two to three weeks, one of his neighbors has seen the bobcat next to their house on three different occasions. In the most recent instance this past weekend, he said the neighbor blew and air horn but the animal did not run away. Police and animal control have been notified. All the sightings have been at dusk.
The man who posted the notification said the sightings happened at a home on Peach Orchard Road.
