WAVERLY, Iowa - Waverly Police are confirming the sighting of a bobcat within the city limits, but said there's no reason to panic.
Officers said bobcats are fairly common in this part of Iowa. They said they're not considered a threat to human safety unless they have rabies or become extremely aggressive.
