Someone’s sick idea of holiday fun was to shoot darts at bobcat kittens in Frisco, according to NBC-DFW/Channel 5. Luckily, Preston Hollow neighbor Dr. Mary Ellen Bluntzer was part of the team to rescue one of them. (Read our interview with Dr. Bluntzer here.)
Frisco police and animal services are investigating. The kitten who was shot in the eye has been named “Miracle” and is at the National Bobcat Rescue and Research Center in Terrell. The kitten with the dart in its hind leg is still missing. A $300 reward is being offered for information leading to the person responsible.
“This was malicious, it was vicious. and it was something that needs to be stopped,” said Tricia Tate, who initially spotted the mother bobcat and three kittens.
