Bobcats take over foreclosed houses in LA.




The foreclosure market is getting wild in Lake Elsinore: "Taking advantage of a slump in local real estate, a family of bobcats has moved into a foreclosed Lake Elsinore home, lolling about on fences and walls and riveting an entire neighborhood."

More, from the L.A. Times' David Kelly:

Neighbors first noticed the feline squatters Aug. 27 hanging out on a side wall of the empty house in the Tuscany Hills development.... The foreclosed home is one of several on the block. Its lawn is brown but still being watered by the sprinklers. The house sits right up against barren, chaparral-covered hills. At least two adult bobcats and perhaps a litter of young ones appear to be occupying the house. Residents have mixed emotions about their new neighbors.

Bottomfisher wrote, "They could have easily qualified for a loan last year....now they just squat."

Gary in Marysville Michigan wrote, "Someone should notify the DEA. They could be guarding a major catnip growing operation."
