An injured bobcat was spotted on the property of a northern Minnesota couple.
Apparently the male bobcat was the victim of a snare trap, which slowly was tightening around his neck.
The couple put out a deer carcass for the cat and observed him every day before contacting Wildwoods.
A Wildwoods volunteer was able to capture the animal and transport him to Duluth, where Dr. Lisa Jeanetta sedated him, removed the snare and assessed his condition.
The bobcat, weighing 23 pounds, suffered from a deep circumferential wound around his neck from the snare. The wound is healing, and he happily is gaining weight thanks to the kind volunteers who donated large amounts of meat.
Bob was released back to the wild Friday morning.
