A recent ocelot road casualty at Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife refuge has put the spotlight on one of the nation’s most endangered mammals.
On Sunday morning, Oct. 18, a bicyclist discovered the carcass of an ocelot along Bayside Drive, according to refuge manager Sonny Perez.
“It was an ocelot that hadn’t previously been reported,” Perez said. “It was a female, and we don’t know if it had any offspring. We also don’t know if it was traveling with another adult,” he added.
