A Newcastle man watched from his kitchen window Tuesday morning as a scene straight out of the Discovery Channel unfolded. JD Hammerly said he works from home and was getting coffee at about 9:45 a.m. when he saw a bobcat (not full grown) in the back yard. As it moved across the yard, its mother appeared. Hammerly said the kitten chased a squirrel up a fir tree and the squirrel leapt from about 30 feet onto the yard.
