A video of a bobcat chasing the squirrel across a screened in porch in Punta Gorda is going viral on social media.
"Woke up to a bobcat chasing a squirrel on our lanai screen!" Michelle Kloese said in a caption for the video, which she shared on Facebook .
"My first reaction was 'I hope that cat doesn't rip my screens!' Then it quickly changed to 'what am I going to do if he falls through?' Then I just enjoyed," Kloese told ABC13 .
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission if you see a bobcat, people should make a lot of noise to scare it off. Secure all food sources, so it doesn’t attract bobcats, and don’t leave small pets outside.
