May 13, 2024

A rehabilitated mountain lion has been released into the wild. He was hit by a car and brought to the San Diego Humane Society’s Ramona Wildlife Center with extensive injuries. Veterinarians say he had road rash, a broken jaw and tooth, and that his fur was covered in ticks and burrs. Doctors repaired the jaw injury and performed a root canal on the animal’s upper right canine tooth. Prior to being released, the mountain lion was fitted with a GPS collar to monitor his future movements.
