Cooper’s Big Day! Learn his amazing story at BigCatRescue.org/cooper Florida law says bobcats have to be released as close to possible as where they were found, on at least 40 acres, with written permission of the land owner. Cooper is being released onto a 3000+ ac tree farm where the owners are happy to have him. Some people say we shouldn’t release bobcats because someone might shoot them, but captivity can feel like a fate worse than death to a wild cat. If you give the bobcat a choice between eating every day and a nice safe den in a cage, or taking their chances in the wild; they always choose to go free. No bobcat ever came here and asked to be held captive “for their own good.”Only cats who were born in the wild can go free. Those who were born in cages cannot. Find out why at BigCatRescue.org/gofreeWays to help bobcats like Cooper (and Teuci and Noel who are still in rehab) are to donate or buy Cooper gear or Bobcat Rehab gear.
