Freckles only weighs  about the same as a lion and Read More

Today at Big Cat Rescue Sept 30 2013

They called Animal Control, who was closed all weekend, so we couldn't reach them until today. They said that since there is no quarantine time known for rabies in bobcats, the Health Department made them euthanize the kitten so the head could be cut off and tested for rabies. Bobcats almost never contract rabies, and the women Read More
