Actually wild cats are pretty common in the area, that they are not seen often has his reason. Mountain lions, Jaguars and Ocelots are mostly night active. Because of their great vision and sharp hearing they do have a good advantage over their pray, on day time they are resting.
Some times we hear from neighbors and farmers of the area that a bigger cat was taking down dogs, house cats or even calfs or cows. In my earlier years I heart that farmers have been shooting them for that reason, but nowadays thankfully they do call the park rangers or personal from the government to help to catch and relocate them. Incidents with humans I personally never have seen. I have seen smaller wild cats on the property, but they are extremely shy. Seeing one of them is absolutely great luck!!!
