The video was shared from surveillance footage and it begins with the man greeting a woman jogging down the street.

Most of the bobcats' are known to not bother humans but those with some disease or rabid tend to attack humans. 

Conservation biologist Imogene Cancellare wrote on Twitter that bobcats "are most active at dusk and dawn. They spend a lot of time resting during the middle of the day, but it's not out of the ordinary for them to be out and about, nor indicative of illness if you see one".

She added that they "don’t normally seek out humans. Most interactions we hear about are with cornered animals found in buildings, or when pets are attacked. Bobcats are intense, loud, and obnoxious, but they are defensive animals, not offensive animals”.
