There are three species of wild cats in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and all three are represented here at the Sanctuary. Since cats are carnivores, we go through a great deal of meat, which adopting an animal can help to pay for!
Mountain Lion (Puma concolor)

Sacagawea was found in a window well outside of Bozeman. Her mother had been killed, and Sac was an orphaned, starving kitten. She was transfered here for long-term care.

Bobcat (Lynx rufus)

Bob was raised as a pet, and came here when his original owners were no longer able to care for him. He is declawed and thoroughly habituated to humans, so he can never be wild.

Canada Lynx (Lynx canadensis)

Thor was born on a fur farm. He was purchased from the fur farm by an individual who ended up bringing him to us for long-term care. Thor has very poor eyesight and never learned to hunt, so he can never be released into the wild.
