VIDEO: Bobcat jumps into backyard, kills Richardson family's dog

- A homeowner in the Dallas suburb of Richardson is concerned about bobcats attacking pets.

Surveillance video from earlier this week shows a bobcat jumping into David Dinsmore’s yard. The family’s curious dogs then approached it.

The bobcat attacked one dog that got too close and mauled it to death.

Now Dinsmore is afraid to let his other dogs outside, even with supervision.

“It was only feet from my dog when that happened, so being out with your dog… everybody says well if you go out in the yard with your dog it’s going to prevent that. I’m not sure it would have. If I had been out there with them I’m not sure it would have prevented the attack,” he said.

Animal control officers quickly set up traps in the area. One bobcat has already been caught.
