A bobcat that was struck by a person in Gloucester driving to Richmond back in November is doing well.

The bobcat is now eating solid foods after its jaw healed, according to the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

Richmond Animal Care and Control responded to VCU on Thanksgiving morning after they received a call for a bobcat stuck in a car. RACC sedated the cat and removed it from the car.

The bobcat was then transported to the Wildlife Center of Virginia for treatment of a cut on its back and some other smaller scrapes. 

Officials say the bobcat will likely be released back into the wild in March.
