Bruemmer Park Zoo bobcat dies from cancer

Baxter the Bobcat, a long time resident at Kewaunee's Bruemmer Park Zoo, has been euthanized after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.  Baxter had been at the zoo for 14 years and shared an enclosure with a female bobcat named Bella.  Parks Director David Myers says all seemed well when Baxter was given a physical over the summer.  But, he says another physical was ordered after Baxter showed signs inconsistent with his usual behavior.

 

 

Myers says there are currently no plans to add another bobcat out of concerns for Bella.

 

 

Baxter and Bella were brought to the Bruemmer Park Zoo as cubs in 2006.
