Will the bobcat

Will the bobcat

 

Please leave wildlife alone! A baby bobcat was euthanized by the Health Department in South FL on Friday because a person picked the kitten up, thinking it an orphan, and she and her neighbor were both bitten. They called Animal Control, who was closed all weekend, so we couldn’t reach them until today. They said that since there is no quarantine time known for rabies in bobcats, the Health Department made them euthanize the kitten so the head could be cut off and tested for rabies. Bobcats almost never contract rabies, and the women who were bitten said they didn’t want the kitten to be killed, but there was not hope for the bobcat once the CDC learns of a bite. If you see a bobcat who looks lost, call us, but please don’t touch them. This act of concern for a kitten just cost him his life. This photo is not the bobcat in question, as no one took a picture.
