Wizard was first brought to our attention when a civilian contacted us requesting that we take in his Bobcat, as he had been informed by wildlife authorities that the windowless, light-less, filthy room that he had been keeping the Bobcat in was not appropriate accommodations. Despite our assurances that we would find space and be in contact in the next few days, impatience ruled, and Wizard's original owner dropped him off at a veterinarian clinic with enough funds to have him euthanized. We are eternally thankful that the very veterinarian was our Senior vet at the zoo. Rather than euthanize Wizard, he contacted us. We gave him the name Wizard from his original 'Lizard,' settling him into his very own habitat.
Free from his rocky start, Wizard is now a healthy and vibrant boy entering into his senior years, who wins the hearts of every visitor with his big eyes and tall ear tufts.
