An injured bobcat that crawled up on the roof of the Monroe Correctional Complex early Tuesday is recovering at an animal hospital.
Prison officers said he climbed the complex walls overnight and snagged himself the fence's razor wire.
By 6:00 a.m., the bobcat was corralled on the roof off the Special Offenders Unit. He was tranquilized and taken to the Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital in Snohomish.
Dr. Roger Hancock helped sew up the cat's wounds, and said with a few more doses of antibiotics he should heal quickly.
"He'll be back out there. Not in Monroe, but he'll be further out in the woods where he won't get into any trouble," said Dr. Hancock.
The bobcat is expected to be released after he wakes up from sedation.
