After having some painful needles extracted, "Cactus Bob" is on his way to recovery at the FFA Wildlife Center. The male bobcat kitten is one of the several animals taken in this spring by the group in Ramona, California.
This particular kitten was "found by Border Patrol in Ocotillo," reported Ali Crumpacker, Director, Fund for Animals Wildlife Center. "They removed a handful of the painful spines before transporting him to our rehabbers who found a few more to remove. He is good shape now and has been buddied up with an orphaned bobcat from Valley Center. These two boys will be with us until October when they are old enough to be released."
The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center is an oasis in Ramona, where they treat injured and orphaned wildlife with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. The staff also cares for nearly forty full-time residents rescued from the exotic pet trade and other acts of cruelty.
