What he saw when he stopped to offer assistance was a bit of a surprise: A bobcat was hiding under the van. “I guess what happened was a woman was driving in Veazie on Route 2 and she hit what she thought was a house cat,” Plourde said. “It was still alive and was kind of hurt. So she pulled over to the side and scooped it up and put it in the car, thinking that it was hurt and was out in the wild. She wanted to help it.” The problem: The animal was not only in the wild. It was wild. “By the time she got to downtown Bangor she realized what she had put in her car was not in fact a house cat,” Plourde said. (read more at Bangor Daily News)
