Wildlife Friends of Thailand race to save injured fishing cat

Wildlife medics rushed to rescue a fishing cat in Thailand, April 9, 2011. The animal was reported caught in a trap and to have suffered a broken leg. Edwin Wiek, founder and director of Wildlife Friends of Thailand, tweeted the news, “Out on a rescue again, today a fishing cat that got stuck in a trap and has a broken leg. Hope we will be in time to save it!”

No news yet on whether Wiek and his colleagues were able to save the endangered cat.

Wildlife Friends of Thailand, of the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, undertakes wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, medical care and reintroduction to help support conservation of Thailand’s wildlife and natural resources.

We will let you know if we learn anything more about the fate of the fishing cat.
