Who knew that a Toyota Prius was a great bobcat catcher?!?!
Yep, that’s right a Virginia driver went 50 miles down the road with a bobcat stuck it their grille.
According to WTVR, Richmond’s Animal Care and Control director received a text from an officer Thanksgiving morning asking for help with the unusual situation.
Director Christie Peters arrived on scene to help and was able to tranquilize the cat and transfer it to a wildlife rehabilitation center.
Remarkably, the nearly 20 pound bobcat showed little evidence of the accident and has been growling and showing its teeth at workers—a sign he’s ready to return to the wild.
