SILT to Monitor Injured Bobcat

A young bobcat treated at the Kamloops Wildlife Park after she was hit by a car at Gallagher Lake was released near there on June 29. SILT radio-collared and ear-tagged the injured bobcat so that its adjustment back to the wild can be monitored. Knowing how this cat re-adapts to being wild, and where it chooses to go, will help SILT identify and acquire land that can remain as habitat for bobcat and other living things for all time. SILT collared several other bobcats in the area last winter as part of an ongoing research study.
