Okla. Wildlife Center Helps Bobcat Found In Norman

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Authorities have turned a bobcat over to a Noble wildlife center after it was found injured in north Norman.

Animal welfare workers discovered the animal after receiving calls from people who spotted the bobcat near Rock Creek Road and Flood Avenue on Monday.

Police said Tuesday workers used a tranquilizer on the bobcat and turned the animal over to WildCare, which rehabilitates wild animals.

WildCare executive director Rondi Large told the Norman Transcript the animal weighs about 20 pounds and is an adult male. Large says its right hind leg was probably injured after it was hit by a car.

She says once the animal heals, it will be released back into the wild.

Large says bobcats often prowl fields in search of small rodents.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
