This Is Why You Don’t Pick Up Injured Animals. Especially Bobcats.

Animal Sanctuary Rescues And Shelters Abused And Abandoned Wildlife

A man driving along Interstate 91 in Vermont came upon an injured animal.  He stopped to offer assistance.  He found a gravely injured bobcat, unconscious from its injuries.  Wanting to help the poor animal he loaded it into his car and drove the the nearest Vermont Welcome Center.

Basically, he took the bobcat to a rest stop.

Shortly after arriving at the Welcome Center the bobcat welcomed back consciousness and was obviously not very pleased.  Everyone was to concerned with their own safety to approach the bobcat to remove it.  Eventually the Vermont Fish and Game Department arrived.

Let’s just say you don’t want to mess with Vermont Fish and Game.

They incapacitated the beast with a Taser.  Then they sedated it.  Then they removed it.  Unfortunately its injuries were so severe the animal had to be euthanized.   And you think you’ve had a bad day.

With every bizarre story there is always a lesson to be learned.

Don’t pick up injured animals.  Don’t approach them or try to help them.  Call animal control or the police.  You wouldn’t want to cause some poor bobcat to get tased would you?
