A frightened seven-year-old girl who turned to her neighbors for help after seeing a bobcat was comforted by the family using their remote doorbells when she fled home while they were absent.
Seven-year-old Taylor, whose last name is not known, was scared when she spotted a bobcat while cycling in her neighborhood in Arizona.
Bobcats are generally not dangerous to humans, however, their size alone would make sighting quite stressful for anyone, and animals can become aggressive if infected with rabies.
Unable to find her mother right away, Taylor sought refuge with a friend, who was not at home
But thanks to their Ring video doorbell, her friend and mother Nicole were able to comfort Taylor until they returned home, in a sweet moment captured on their CCTV.
Taylor, a seven-year-old girl from Arizona, got scared after seeing a bobcat on her street and was comforted by her neighbor Nicole and her anonymous daughter until they got home.
Taylor, who wore a pink helmet and had kept her bike with her, could be heard crying for her mother when she first knocked on her friend’s door.
She had just seen the bobcat and was looking for help, but since the family was not at home, their Ring doorbell system put a call on Nicole’s cell phone.
The exchange between Taylor, his pumped and the mother of his friend Nicole was captured by their CCTV.
Taylor’s friend answered the phone, thinking she was talking to someone named “Lauren,” but Taylor quickly explained the situation.
Nicole and her daughter, who we don’t see in the video, comforted Taylor until they were driving their homes
“I’m on my way home right now. I will be soon. Okay, said her friend over the intercom.
Bobcats are widely distributed in the United States and are rarely reported to harm humans, but they can become aggressive if they have rabies (stock photo)
The bobcat, native to North America, is one of the most common wild cat species in the United States and southern Canada.
They are also known as the Red Lynx and are not considered endangered.
Like all felines, bobcats are carnivorous and typically hunt rabbits and hares, birds, small rodents, and deer.
They can adapt to a wide range of habitats, from desert to more urban areas.
According to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), bobcat attacks on humans are extremely rare.
Although they are generally shy and avoid humans, bobcats can become aggressive and dangerous if they have contracted rabies, so vigilance is essential.
“No, please open the door. There is a bobcat, and I want to come in! Please, ‘Taylor could be heard pleading through tears.
Nicole could then be heard saying to her daughter, ‘Okay, tell her, we’re going to be home in a minute.
Meanwhile, Taylor was still restless outside the family porch. She asked, “Is anyone home?”
Nicole reassured her voice that she and her daughter would be “home in a minute.”
“We’ll be home in a minute, my dear. Just stay there, she said.
‘Okay. I really want to come in because, my mom, I don’t know where my mom is, ”Taylor explained.
“I think my mom is back home and I saw him…” she started to say.
Nicole, who was driving down the street to rescue the girl, told her to stay where she was.
“No, you stay there. We’ll be back in a minute, my dear. You stay there.
‘Okay. I want my mom, Taylor shouted, standing in the corner of the door by the ring.
“It’s okay, just stay there, okay,” Nicole’s daughter could be heard saying. “We literally turn the corner, right at Jason’s.
From inside the car, Nicole told her daughter to keep talking to Taylor on the phone until they reached their house.
“Don’t hang up on him. Stay on the phone with her, ”she said.
Taylor then asked Nicole if she could call her mother.
“Yes, I will definitely do it,” Nicole replied.
Taylor, who couldn’t find her mother, cycled to Nicole’s house hoping she would let her in, safe from the animal
Poor Taylor could be heard crying for her mother in the video, which was captured by Nicole’s CCTV
The seven-year-old begged Nicole to come to the door and bravely waited alone until Nicole came home
At the end of the video, Nicole’s car could be seen pulling into her driveway as she came to Taylor’s rescue
“As soon as I get you to safety at my house.” I’ll call your mom. I’m almost there, I’m right next to the park. I’m almost there.
The video ended with a white van parking lot at the end of the driveway to the house that looked like Nicole, who had arrived to help Taylor with the bobcat.
It is very rare that Bobcats, which are the most common wild cat breed in the United States, are considered dangerous to humans.
Usually, big cats avoid cities, according to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP).
Bobcats can be dangerous and aggressive if they contracted rabies, however, so Nicole was right to rush to Taylor’s aid.
