Bobcat survives 50 miles trapped in grill of a car in Virginia

RICHMOND, Virginia -- The director of an animal care and control facility, her father and her co-worker experienced what they are calling a Thanksgiving miracle involving a bobcat.

Richmond Animal Care and Control Director Christie Peters said that a woman driving to work Thursday morning knew that she had hit something in Gloucester County.

However, it was not until she parked that she discovered a bobcat lodged in the grill of her Prius.

The animal had survived a 50-mile, nearly hour-long journey to the city.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
