Video: Squirrel narrowly escapes death by bobcat on top of Florida patio

National

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A screened-in patio in Florida became the setting for a nature documentary about a squirrel’s tale of survival. 

A video, taken by Michelle Kloese at her home in Punta Gorda Sunday morning, shows a bobcat hunting a squirrel on top of her patio. 

“Woke up to a bobcat chasing a squirrel on our lanai screen!” Kloese said in a caption for the video, which she shared on Facebook.

Kloese said she watched the squirrel leap off of the screen and onto the ground, then the bobcat followed it up a tree. 

She told WISH-TV’s sister station WFLA that the squirrel is still alive and was last seen crawling across her pool cage around 6 p.m. Sunday night.
