Tribute to Wilbur the Bobcat

Tucson Wildlife Center wants to pay tribute to our beloved Wilbur, who passed last January. Wilbur came to us over 16 years ago, as a 3-week-old kitten, with a head injury suffered when a bulldozer collapsed his den. With medical care from TWC, he survived but was diagnosed with epilepsy and had to stay on medication, and could not be released back into his natural habitat. Wilbur and his lifelong friend, Wilma, became our ambassador bobcats who touched everyone who met them. He is our logo, and he will be missed.

Please use this link to watch this moving tribute. We are grateful for the joy he gave everyone.
