A wildlife encounter

A bobcat and a herd of deer meet up in a Kelowna resident's backyard and it's all caught on camera.
Wildlife encounter in Kelowna

Jean Russel was looking out her window into her backyard in Kelowna when she spotted something special.

A herd of deer were making their way through the neighbourhood when someone else decided to pop by for a visit.

A bobcat wandered into the yard, making it’s way under a fence, through a fence, and on top of a fence — right past the deer.

Then just when the deer think the cat is gone and begin to move on, the animal pops up again as one deer does a final check of Russel’s yard.

Russel caught it all on camera.
