Injured baby bobcat being released in Nicasio after rehabilitation

A young female bobcat who was found on a roadside in mid-November is being returned to the wild, after a six-week recuperation period at WildCare and Sonoma County Wildlife in Marin.

The bobcat was found on Nov. 16 on the side of the road by a passerby. The wild feline suffered from an injured eye, a broken foot, and head trauma severe enough that the good Samaritan who found her was able to wrap her up in his t-shirt while waiting for assistance.

 

After receiving initial medical treatment at WildCare, she was transferred to Sonoma County Wildlife for six weeks or recuperation. Now, she’s ready to be released back into the wild.

The brave little bobcat will be let go in Nicasio Thursday afternoon.
