A wild bobcat was seen ‘shopping’ inside a store and climbing over the shelves with a ferocious snarl.

The feline visited a Dollar General store in Martin, Kentucky, on Wednesday, where police responded to an out-of-the ordinary cat call.

The bobcat was seen hopping onto shelves near the deoderant aisle, and employees said the animal was using its claws to climb throughout the store.

In one of the pictures, a heavily-protected arm can be seen holding the bobcat by its neck as it seems to be roaring.

The Floyd County Sheriff’s Department responded to the incident and were able to safely capture the bobcat and remove him from the store.

A police statement on Facebook said: ‘This little fellow was captured tonight inside a store after store employees called and reported it being inside.

‘Deputies along with troopers and Martin Police were able to safely capture this bobcat and remove him from the store. He was released without injury.’

No employees or customers were harmed in the incident, but one worker did say that the bobcat will not be welcomed back to the store.

The bobcat appeared to be a baby, and the average bobcat weighs between 11 to 30 pounds, according to National Geographic.
