    I have a question. Is this a form of an AG-GAG? Where they will not allow you to film a Bob Cat in Rehab. Is is really wrong to feed Predators live rabbits, deer, mice and the other animals that the other place does. I forget the name of it. It is the place that will not allow you to film the rehab of a Big Cat. I hope someone will answer my questions. Since this is an old post.

      The issue w/ the FWC not allowing the photos or videos of rehab animals is something we oppose. We think it is important for people to be able to see animals who are in rehab, as long as seeing them doesn't domesticate them. Web cams, photos and video, if taken remotely do not have a negative impact on the animals and helps educate people about why it is so important to protect wild animals.

    SO SAD! But as you said she spent her final hours in comfort. And now she is playing in Bobcat Heaven!

    Thank you all for caring enough to make her final hours warm and caring. You all are truly angels to these beautiful creatures. Carole, you are a very special angel for getting that little bobcat out of a horrible situation.

    Oh no. Poor baby. So sorry she didn't survive. Bless you fall or your efforts.

    Poor bobcat. At least she is in good hands now. Hopefully, she can recover and be sent back to the wild. Thanks so much for everything you do for the Big and Small cats!

    Also, I can't believe that toddler's parents weren't worried about their kid sticking his fingers and face where a scared, sick, cornered bobcat could get to him!

    After my domestic cat was neutered, he was angry with the world when we picked him up (big surprise). I was 16 at the time, and the vet wouldn't let me take *my cat* out of the cage because he didn't want me to "risk permanent facial scars." Wise up, people!

    Thank you, Carole. Please get yourself some rest, if at all possible. Today is the day to delegate as much as you can!

    Is there a petition site?

    I just want to thank you for all the wonderful work you do with these precious cats. It would be a dream of mine to be able to do what you do. I know you don't know me, but if I can help in anyway, just call 631.875.5101. I do have a car, however it is a small one. But if there is anyway I could possibly help, it would be an honor. You and all the good people at BCR do such a wonderful job.

    Thank you so much for saving this poor girl, Carole and bless you for going through that obviously terrifying ordeal of saving her! I hope she will be alright and able to return to the wild. I too find it hypocritical that the FWC says that you guys cant do what everyone else does. Something fishy with that! (No pun intended.)

      The dedication and commitment to helping these animals is inspirational..having to abide by strict laws can't be easy, but BCR does what it has to do.

    Don't understand what burr they have under their saddle, but it seems rediculous.

    What an amazing story of this rescue! That poor cat must have been terrified of those people and dogs!

    Hopefully you're going to get any help! bc. I'd love to do something – anything – but can't from here in Germany… Hope the bobcat gets well soon. And get some rest, whoever of you posted this ;).

    Interesting work – also interesting that this woman is afraid of dogs but will hold a wild bobcat!

      Kind of ironic, isn't it. I guess I just "know" wildcats better and know what they are likely to do, which is take every opportunity to kill you and escape, whereas dogs and horses just freak me out.

      yeah, I grew up with half husky half malamutes and they were very big – I absolutely love big dogs. but the dog that attacked and bit me? little yappy thing. don't like 'em.
