Zoo officers in Washington , D.C ., have expelled a search for an escaped bobcat, three days after she was reported missing from her enclosure.
Our team did not recuperate our bobcat, Ollie, overnight so they have moved into the next phase of their retrieval programme, Devin Murphy a spokesperson for the Smithsonians National Zoo, told The Huffington Post Wednesday.
That current propose means theyll finish place patrols but will keep their hotline open and will be reviewed by tips-off, Murphy said.
Ollie, a female bobcat weighing 25 pounds, likely pinched out of a 5-by-5-inch pit in her paddocks mesh fencing at the zoo Monday, bureaucrats said.
The zoo has since shut down the bobcat exhibit and has declared the orbit a quiet region in the expectation that Ollie will return.
We very much guess she will want to come back to her exhibit, Brandie Smith, the National Zoos associate chairman for animal attend sciences, told The New York Times.Theres shelter, theres nutrient, theres warmth.
