Authorities warn that bobcats are killing pets in Flagler Beach

- Cats, dogs, even rabbits, are missing or have been killed in one Flagler Beach neighborhood. The suspected culprit: a bobcat.

One of Bill Petty's cats, Zoe, is a victim. She was an outdoor cat.

"Unfortunately, after 9 years something caught her and it was a big something," Petty said,.

Zoe was found dead on a neighbor's porch, with bite marks on her body. People in this area believe it's a bobcat killing their pets and wildlife in the area of 16th Street South and 27th Street South.

Neighbors say it's been a problem for months, such a problem they started their own Facebook group called, "Save Flagler Beach Pets."  They're trying to come up with a solution, including hiring a trapper.
