Shelton resident Jessica Florczak was in her living room when she saw what looked like a cat running through the snow in her back yard, in the White Hills neighborhood near Webb Mountain Park in Monroe.

“Then I said, ‘That isn’t a cat — it’s much bigger than a cat,’” she recalled. The Shelton High junior grabbed a camera and took photos of this bobcat from the family’s sunroom, on Thursday, March 12.

A classmate told her he had seen the same bobcat earlier on the same day.
