Fishing cat cubs found
Three fishing cat cubs were found in a sugar field in the Indian city of Karad taluka just before Christmas, according to a report by Daily News and Analysis. The cubs are now under the supervision where they were found, and evidence of a female fishing cat has been spotted in the area.
Let’s hope the cubs and mother can be reunited. Far too often discovered fishing cat cubs are “rescued” only to live a life of confinement as someone’s exotic pet.
We saw this directly while documenting fishing cats in Thailand. A fishing cat, found in a rice field near Khao Sam Roi Yot NP as a cub, has spent 3 years living a small life in a backyard cage, and he is no friendlier for the care. You will hear and see more of that cat’s story as we put together the CAT in WATER documentary.
