SPCA rescues bobcat in need of medical care

HOUSTON

On Wednesday rescued an adult male bobcat from the Friendswood area and took him to the Wildlife Center of Texas, a subsidiary of the Houston SPCA, in northwest Houston.

An exam found the animal was emaciated, covered in fleas, suffering from a bacterial infection and sarcoptic mange.

Now, the bobcat will receive short and long-term rehabilitative care until he's ready to return to his native habitat.
