Nikko’s mother selected a secluded spot at a school yard for her den. Although school was out for the summer, leaving plenty of time for the family to move on, caretakers wanted them removed. Trappers were called in and the three were brought to the Tucson Wildlife Center to prepare them for a release in a safe location.
Unfortunately, Nikko’s mother was so stressed by the trapping that she rejected her cubs. Nikko’s sibling did not survive. Although Nikko was being bottle fed around the clock, his only hope was foster bobcat mom, Ruby.
