PREBLE COUNTY — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is investigating after a confirmed bobcat sighting was reported in Preble County.
The report was off Bantas Creek Road and was made on Facebook, according to officials. It was originally investigated as a mountain lion sighting.
ODNR said there have been images captured by cameras set up for hunting in the area and they have been able to determine that the animal is a bobcat.
According to the department, they suspect there are multiple bobcats living around the farm where the report was made.
ODNR said bobcats are common in the area and there are bobcats living in all 88 Ohio counties.
Bobcats are mostly nocturnal and will eat a diet similar to coyotes.
