COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado woman picked up an injured bobcat and put it in her SUV, unrestrained, next to her child's car seat -- and now authorities are warning other parents not to do the same.
No one was injured, but CPW officials admonished the woman and warned others to never pick up wild animals. Officials tweeted a picture of the big cat.
"See this bobcat? Notice its large teeth? Imagine the claws within its big paws," the tweet said. "A #ColoradoSprings woman picked up this injured wild cat and put it in her car where her child was seated! NEVER PICK UP WILD ANIMALS. She was lucky. Please call @COParksWildlife and let us handle."
