Ollie the Bobcat Found on Zoo Grounds

After two days on the lam, 7-year-old bobcat Ollie is safely back in her enclosure at Washington’s National Zoo. Just after the zoo had given up looking for her, saying they had confidence she could survive on her own in the wild, a visitor spotted Ollie crossing a walkway near the bird house. Staff members quickly put out traps in that area. “She was watching us and waiting for us to walk away. She never came out to say ‘Hi.’ She was waiting to see what kind of goodies we left for her,” said the zoo’s Craig Saffoe. “She came in, she ate a couple of goodies and she left a lot of goodies sitting in the crate. She wasn’t starving.” The zoo said Ollie appeared to be in good health but would get a full exam on Thursday. — Read it at CBS News
