Big Cat Updates
Yesterday, Keeper Ashley reported that Lovey Bobcat had an adventure today. She caught a small brown bird, Refused to drop it. Then proceeded to eat it whole. The event was added to the observation sheet. The reason we do that is just in case something goes wrong the vets will have this detail.
Some of little Pebble’s necropsy results have come back. She was negative for rabies. The initial necropsy found fluid in her chest and abdomen and multiple organ failure. Waiting on more in-depth details and virus tests to follow.
