Bobcat Released Into Wild

Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife officials safely released a male juvenile bobcat into the wild last week. Based on its teeth, the bobcat was at least six months old; it was released on BLM land in Lane County.
ODFW’s evaluation of the bobcat showed it to be healthy. It had no signs of active infection or injury.
It is not known if two bobcats found earlier in the week at Oak Hill School were orphaned, abandoned by their mother, or naturally dispersing. Young bobcats may start to disperse away from their mother as early as six months old . . .
