SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – A bobcat recently paid a visit to a Scottsdale home.

Brian Grayek said his wife, Chrissy, took photos of the bobcat from inside their home in the area of 124th Street and Shea Boulevard, which is near the McDowell Mountains.

The couple have lived in Arizona for 27 years and said they'd never seen a bobcat prior to this visitor.

"Then to have this one come into our backyard, well, let's just say we were amazed," Brian Grayek said.

He said the bobcat may have been after the quail that are often in their yard.
