A new video captures an encounter between a snake and a bobcat in Oro Valley. 

The video, posted yesterday by the Arizona Game and Fish Department on Twitter, shows a bobcat swatting at a western diamondback rattlesnake before backing away. 

The department says the rattlesnake "drew the attention of the curious bobcat because of its movement and sound."
