FOOTBRIDGE-- After a series of break-ins at the Bruemmer Park Zoo, an escaped bobcat is back home. According to county leaders, a set of keys for all of the cages at the zoo and all park facilites county-wide were stolen from a storage garage about 2 weeks ago. Last weekend, the theives returned and opened the enclosures for the bobcats and arctic wolves at the zoo.
The missing bobact was recovered in a wooded area near the park less than 8 hours later. The Kewaunee County Sherrif's office is investigating the incident and is asking anyone with inforamtion to come forward.
The county's parks director says only one bobcat, a male named Baxter, ran away from the zoo. The 6-year-old bobcat was hand-raised at the facility.
