Cooper is a young wild bobcat nearing the end of his Rehab Journey. He will soon be released back into the wild where he can live wild and free.
This wild little spitfire ended up in Big Cat Rescue’s Rehab & Release program several months ago as a young kitten because he had been caught red-pawed in a lady’s chicken coop stealing her small bantam chickens. It was pretty obvious he was an orphan and was too young to survive on his own without getting into trouble, or worse.
Wild bobcat kittens need their mothers to teach them to stay away from humans, how to hunt and how to live in the wild. Robbing chicken coops would surely cost this kitten his life but he was too young to catch regular wild prey. Without intervention this wild young bobcat kitten would not survive.
Thanks to friends, like you, who use the AmazonSmile program we are able to save wild bobcat kittens like Cooper, give them the medical care they need, time to grow, and time to learn the hunting skills they will need to survive in the wild.
