Animals Video

By Andrew Kao 

This is the moment a feisty bobcat was released into the wild – in the foothills of Utah. 

Wildlife coordinator Mike Wardle found the young bobcat roaming urban neighbourhoods east of Salt Lake City. 

Once hunted for their high value furs, the animals now have a current population of between 700,000 and one million left in the wild.

In the video, filmed last month, the animal can be seen darting into the undergrowth after the door of its cage is opened.
