Ono - Bobcat
DOB: March 1995
Weight: 29 lbs
Ono’s family was accidentally killed during a barn demolition. His rescuers originally raised him, but brought him to the Folsom Zoo when they moved out-of-state. Bobcats are normally solitary animals, coming together only during breeding periods. Ono and his fellow bobcat “roommates” got along quite well however, and even tolerated human caregivers.
He went in to have the large mass on the side of his face further evaluated in Janruary of 2012 and after examining him additional masses were found near his heart and abdomen. Prognosis and treatment options were not good so the decision was made to humanely euthanize him. He was a very special bobcat who will be missed by many.
