Bobcat Marley is One Ferocious Feline | Bandit Patrol

(VOICEOVER) Four weeks older,
and double his original weight, Bobcat Marley is
now healthy enough for a quick but important
step in his rehabilitation. Hey, Grant, you want to
come help me for a minute? GRANT: Yeah. I’m going to give him his
feline distemper vaccine. OK. You draw it up
before we get to him. With any animal, you’re always
concerned about imprinting. And with a bobcat, we
definitely don’t want him to approach anyone in the wild. So we’re going to be as hands
off as we can possibly be. But we have to vaccinate him. So the goal, when we
vaccinate Bobcat Marley, is to do it as quickly and
painlessly as possible. Let’s just get him out
and get him his shot and get him back in. You ready? I’m ready. Hey there, buddy. That was a good one. I know. Good thing I have
two gloves on, right? [snarling] OK. [snarling] All right. Get in close. OK. Let me get him
positioned better. All right. Go for it. There you go. If he needs something
that we have to touch him, then we will touch him. But, basically, this
is a hands-off raising of this animal. If we do our job
correctly as rehabbers, this bobcat is not going to
want anything to do with us. And that’s exactly what we want. There you go. I’m sorry, buddy. He says, I don’t like you. I know. And that’s just
as it should be. Now Bobcat Marley just needs
to grow a little bit more. And then he gets to go to
his big outdoor enclosure. That big outdoor enclosure
is going to make him bigger, stronger, and wilder.

  2. They did an awesome job with the bobcat kitten, it looked like the animal barely even noticed what was happening ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Glad to see they are handling him properly by avoiding any imprinting. This will make sure he avoids all humans in the future. Looks like he really hated that shot! LOL

  4. Heh. This is nothing. Watch the rest of the episode if you get the chance. Bobcat Marley is awesome. A total jaw-dropping badass, even as a kitten.
