Bobcat Released back into the wild by Lindsay Wildlife Experience
Bobcat recovers and goes back to the wild thanks to Lindsay Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital!
The bobcat was brought to Lindsay last fall at eight-weeks-old, after a businessman, who owns property in the area, rescued the cat. The rescuer called his sister and his staff to help wrangle the young cat into a pet carrier, and brought her to Lindsay Wildlife Rehabilitation Hospital. This allowed Lindsay’s hospital team to treat a puncture wound on her neck, preventing life-threatening infections.
Lindsay’s Director of Veterinary Services Doctor Guthrum Purdin partnered with Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue for the long term rehabilitation of the bobcat because they have expertise with big cats and the space to provide rehabilitation.
“It’s been a long journey for this little bobcat, but she has recovered from her injuries and has proven able to catch and cache prey,” Purdin said. “It’s time for her to go back to where she belongs; wild and free.”
