Rescued bobcat recovering 'great' at BC Wildlife Park

The BC Wildlife Park released an update on Gallagher, the rescued bobcat, this afternoon.

According to the park, Gallagher is doing great and the recovery for her fractured leg has not seen any complications.

In addition to healing, Gallagher has also gotten her appetite back and is now able to feast on occasional rabbit carcass and a variety of other snacks.

"Her appetite has been great, and she is enjoying a variety of items and even the occasional rabbit carcass," wrote the park in a release. "Rabbits are a staple in a wild bobcat’s diet, and it is important to provide Gallagher with as natural a diet as possible while she is healing in the hospital."

The park adds that her spirits are high and she is as sassy as ever. To ensure she does not begin to associate people with food or become used to human company, residents are not permitted to visit Gallagher and cleaning as well as feeding must be done quickly.

Gallagher still needs additional funds for another surgery. So far, $2,830 of the $3,000 goal has been raised. To support Gallagher and the BC Wildlife Park, click here.
