Lakota is a male bobcat who was born in 2013 and sent to the Mobile Zoo in Alabama along with another bobcat named Sioux. Some say they were taken from the wild, and that they are siblings, but no one seems to know for sure.
The Mobile County Animal Control seized the starving, neglected animals to send them to proper sanctuaries.
When Lakota arrived in 2017 he was grossly underweight and fearful of people. Lakota loves to eat and has discovered that enrichment can be a LOT of fun; especially if it includes his favorite spices.
