PHOTOS: Bobcat burned in California wildfire set for release to wild

US & World

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A young bobcat that was badly burned in a Southern California wildfire will be released back into the wild.

The San Diego Humane Society says the 7- to 9-month-old female was picked up on Tuesday from Ramona Wildlife Center and taken to an area near the site of the fire that has abundant food and water sources.

The cat was discovered near the fire in San Bernardino County in October.

The humane society says the emaciated cat recovered and is now a “feisty predator” able to fend for herself.
