A bobcat was rescued after climbing to the top of a power pole in South Florida.
The bobcat was seen on a Florida Department of Transportation camera on a portion of highway known as “Alligator Alley.”
“It’s not an uncommon type of a behavior,” Carol Lyn Parrish, with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told the Naples Daily News. “A bobcat is a feline and there are some characteristics that you’d see with your cat at home.”
Wildlife officials in a bucket truck and a long pole helped coax the big cat from its perch around 12:30 p.m. It then ran into the woods.
“It’s in their nature to climb, but as far as the power pole, that’s the first I’ve heard of,” Parrish told the Daily News.
