Rescued bobcat released back into the wild

Posted: Updated:

WCAX News recently told you about a bobcat that got hit by a car in New Hampshire. Wednesday, it was released back into the wild.

The Brattleboro Reformer got video of the release Wednesday morning. The bobcat had been in rehab after it was hit by a car on Route 9 in Chesterfield two weeks ago.

The wild cat was in a carrier that they took into a field. At first, the kitty was reluctant to leave, but then she bolted off!

"She's a dangerous animal. But she definitely would not have survived if she had not been brought into rehab. The first three days she was just laying on her side, she had a terrible concussion in her head, as well as her hip. But as you can see, she's doing great now," said Deb Gode, Winchester Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

The rehab center says other bobcats they've had in the past that have been hit by cars haven't been so lucky. One couldn't go back to the wild and another one had to be euthanized.
