Bobcat #19-2408 update

With spring officially here, the rehabilitation staff have started planning for the release of Bobcat #19-2408. The young cat is exhibiting appropriate wild behaviors; she has been demonstrating that she can successfully hunt for various types of live prey, and she remains shy and evasive around humans. Wildlife rehabilitator Kelsey reached out to biologists with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries; a tentative release is planned for sometime during the week of March 23. On release day, a biologist will come to the Center to pick up the bobcat and will take her to a remote area for release.
