Bobcat Found in Zeigler

Zeigler – The Zeigler Animal Control Team is making headlines after capturing a Bobcat on the outskirts of town on Wednesday. Officers checked a live trap and found the creature inside unharmed. A report from the Zeigler Police Department’s Facebook page says that the animal was released back into the wild and that the Illinois Department of Natural Resources has been notified. Bobcats were placed on the state’s list of threatened species in 1977 but the population has steadily rebounded in recent years.
