'There's a bobcat!': Video shows unusual visitor caught sneaking into school
An unusual visitor decided to come to class at an Oregon private school.
"I was sitting here, doing some boring paperwork after school when I heard from outside the office, one of our moms yell: 'There's a bobcat!'" John O'Brien, head of the school, told KVAL.
The cat got inside O'Brien's office.
"I turned and looked, and it was right at my feet, basically," he said. "So, I went that way outside and closed the door."
According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, a bobcat is approximately double the size of a domestic cat. It has longer legs and a shorter tail.
Bobcats are commonly found in Oregon, except at high altitudes, KVAL reports.
But this behavior was far from ordinary.
"It is not common, that is definitely not normal behavior for a wild animal," Joe Stack with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, said.
The bobcat was locked in O'Brien's office when experts came to remove it.
Stack said they humanely euthanized the cat because it was a risk to public safety.
