A bobcat was spotted sleeping outside Westview High School in Rancho Penasquitos on Monday evening, police said.
San Diego police officers were seen near the high school's football stadium after someone saw the animal west of the bleachers at 4:30 p.m., SDPD officer Dino Delimitros said.
Miguel Carillo was at Westview High to watch the marching band competition on the football field.
"Around 1:30 or so, he moved out towards the shopping center and spent about 30 minutes in the top corner of the bush area. Then, about an hour later, he came down to what appears to be a den area for him," said Carillo.
The California Department of Fish and Game did not respond to the incident because the bobcat would likely run off, Delimitros said.
The animal did not attack anyone, according to the officer.
By 6:45 p.m., the scene was cleared.
It was unknown which direction the bobcat took off.
