Bobcat Sightings In The Capital Region

I had no idea what animals could be lurking in our backyards here in the Capital Region. It always surprises me when a bear suddenly appears in Albany. There are also new animals that I had never heard of like the coydog that has been seen in neighborhoods across our area. But this one I had no idea lived in the woods in the 518.
