At about 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving day, animal control officer Barbara Jones, who was on-call, phoned RACC Director Christie Peters.
“I just finished making a chocolate pie, got the call, and was, like ‘Dad, you want to go help me get a bobcat out of a car grille?’” Peters wrote on Facebook. In the spirit of the holiday, saving a life quickly became a family affair.
After arriving at the scene and tranquilizing the hissing bobcat, Peters saw just how precarious and uncomfortable a situation the cat was in. The creature had been suspended above the highway by just a wire and a piece of plastic stuck below her rib cage. Thankfully, her injuries seemed minor, considering the long journey she had made.
