On May 15, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement officers assisted Border Patrol agents in apprehending a suspected wildlife smuggler attempting to cross the border on LRGV Refuge land with a caged bobcat.

The bobcat’s health will be evaluted to decide whether to not it can be released back into the wild. If the evaluation proves that it has become too domesticated for release, it may be placed in a wildlife sanctuary.

Thank you to the officers and agents for their dedication to combating this highly detrimental activity.
