Mary Sue Burch told Local 6 she first saw a smaller bobcat -- possibly a baby -- walking around a week ago.

On Sunday, Burch saw the bigger bobcat in her yard on Halloran Street Southeast in Palm Bay. Burch managed to quickly get five pictures of the bobcat before it went back into the woods behind her home.

Burch called Palm Bay police and was told there was nothing to worry about unless the bobcat was rabid.

Burch said she has lived in the home for three years and had never seen a bobcat before Sunday.
