Bobcat euthanized after capture in Southern California

A bobcat caught in Ojai Friday had to be euthanized.

The bobcat came too close to civilization Friday wandering on bike trails and in the street.

But, when the Humane Society tried to catch the animal it ran into a fifteen foot tunnel.

They tried getting the animal out with sticks, rocks and a tranquilizer.

Eventually they crawled into the tunnel and pulled the bobcat out.

The bobcat was taken to Ojai Wildlife where a vet decided it was best to put the animal down.
