A bobcat was recently seen at Centennial Park in Bothell, leading city officials to issue a warning to residents.

According to the city, if a bobcat is seen residents should stay as far away from the animal as possible, protect children and pets, back away slowly and deliberately while avoiding running; if necessary spray the cat with water or make loud noise like blowing an air horn.

City spokesperson Barbara Ramey said there have been reports of bobcat sightings in the city since last fall, and that other wildlife such as coyotes are also common in city parks.
