Hurricane Irma crashes tree down on gift shop

Big Cat Updates

Today the bobcat and cougar we were sheltering during Hurricane Irma went home.  Catching them was surprisingly easy.  Bobbi was sitting in her crate, which we had strapped up high on the wall of the cage, because she loves being up high.  We just shut the door and she was captured.  Kathryn has been working with Panther every day, to get him to follow her for food, and she let him right into the transport.


Wonder what Big Cat Rescue looked like in the early morning light after Hurricane Irma ripped through Tampa? Watch and see. Find out more at

We sheltered a bobcat and a cougar during the storm and returned them today.  This video is their arrival and departure.
