San Diego Humane Society caring for 4 young bobcats


SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Humane Society says an orphaned bobcat brought to the Ramona Wildlife Center last month has new company.

The bobcat is now in an outdoor habitat with another orphaned bobcat and two siblings. The four “very feisty” bobcats will grow up together before they are released back into the wild in late summer or early fall, the humane society said.

The humane society took in one young bobcat in early May. Staff said pairing young bobcats while they undergo care helps to better prepare them for life in the wild.

Wildlife staff have already helped several bobcats so far this year, including one that spent more than three months at the Ramona Wildlife Center before it was released in March. The humane society returned another bobcat to the wild in January after she was found injured and pregnant in Rancho Bernardo.
