New Jersey police say a mother was forced to barricade herself and her two young children in a bathroom after a wild bobcat broke into her house.
The family called the police sometime before 6 p.m. on Wednesday evening to request help.
Sgt. Robert Oranchak soon after arrived on the scene to find the animal near the back door of the house and the mother and children hiding in the bathroom.
The officers opened the doors and windows of the house in an attempt to persuade the cat to leave, and after about an hour the bobcat exited through the kitchen window and ran off into the woods, police said. The animal reportedly did not appear to be sick or rabid.
