"Chased by a Bobcat on Myrtle Street" by Sunshine Whited

Myrtle Street on Google Maps
"I work nights and am off tonight, so I thought I'd take a stroll down by the bay about midnight with my dog and a flashlight. We just passed the cemetery when an animal popped out of the woods behind us. It chased us and was screaming a weird scream I'd never heard before. It only followed us about 20 or 30 feet. We made it to the bay and I called my husband who was out of town. I was scared to walk back home. He advised me to walk back home and put our dog on high alert. So I did as he said, she perked up and zipped from side to side, as far as the leash would go.

As we rounded the hill I could see it's eyes and it did that same weird scream. But this time it ran away and disappeared. It was too big to be a house cat and too small and moved to fast too be a dog. I immediately went home and looked up videos of cat screams. It sounded exactly like one of the bobcat screams on YouTube. I left a message for animal control and will not be doing any night time strolls anytime soon. I am also cooking my dog a big fat steak! Just wanted to let everyone know to be careful out there--especially at night."
