Coordinator Report Wednesday 3/29/2017

Sioux is very restless in the hospital. No pee pads under her cage she will pull them up and shred them. She likes the lights out and music on.

TJ and Seth are both locked in their roof sections. TECO is coming tomorrow to put in new power poles.

We got a red meat delivery and everyone worked together to get it unloaded and sorted into the walk-in freezer.

Some raking got done in front section.

Picky cats did ok:

  • Tj ate 9 lbs
  • Cameron 5 lbs
  • Joseph 6 lbs
  • Hoover 5 lbs Hoover was very distracted today
  • Zeus 7 lbs. Zeus did not want to come in his lockout for eye drops. Zeus likes his meat cut up rather small.

That’s it for me.

WOOHOO – A video from Dr. Justin!!

Joseph the lion hates me! Once in a while I try to get a good look at him to make sure he appears healthy never goes well.

A lion does not forget when you shoot him in the behind with a dart and then do surgery on him.

Wyeth Goes Back to the Wild TODAY

Recap of Wyeth’s Story

When a couple accidentally hit this little 8 month old bobcat, they called the Pinellas County Sheriff’s department for help. Deputy Wyeth had been to Big Cat Rescue before and scooped the broken little body up and rushed her to our front gate, where he called our emergency line, which rings to my mother, Barbara Stairs, who met him at the gate.

She called Jamie and Dr. Justin who arrived on the scene, 10 minutes later, to witness this brave deputy, pulling the very angry bobcat from the back seat of his vehicle. He and Barbara were trying to safely contain her in the tiger transport but the bobcat was spread eagle over the entrance and NOT going in.

Give to Big Cat RescueJamie arrived just in time to help push her in while Barbara snapped this image. Jamie then took a photo of the little bobcat in the tiger transport. See image at the top of the page.

Wyeth’s X-rays looked good, so Dr. Justin Boorstein stitched up some minor wounds and we were hoping we could just give her some time to heal before sending her back to the wild.
