BOBCATS ON THE PROWL: There have been at least three bobcat sightings in the last few days in one Hollywood Hills neighborhood. "Yeah, I was walking by my lower level back here, and there was this huge bobcat right by my back door," resident Patti Negri told KTLA. "He was drinking my dog's water." Negri says coyotes and bobcats have become common in the neighborhood, and that they've been getting bolder.
