Southern Arizona homeowners find wild bobcat lying on their injured dog’s bed
SAN MANUEL, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Homeowners in San Manuel were surprised when they opened their door to find another animal lounging in their dog’s bed. The Arizona Game and Fish posted on Twitter that a bobcat was found lying comfortably on the dog bed instead of the homeowner’s pet, saying it ran away before a Game and Fish officer arrived.
The homeowners suspect the bobcat came in through the dog door before attacking their dog, Squeakers. The family took the dog to a Tucson veterinarian for treatment of various wounds. Now a GoFundMe account has been set up to help pay for Squeaker’s surgery and other medical expenses. Tap/click here to donate.
