“Our Boston Community Outreach team got an unusual call. This stunning Serval had been spotted several times in Lincoln, MA and after days of communication, a resident notified us that he was in their yard. We immediately got on the road to see if we could capture and help this cat.
Servals are wild African Cats and are illegal to own as pets in Massachusetts. We don’t know how long this guy, now called Bruno, was outside, but he is thin and has a severely broken leg that is several months old.
We were lucky to be able to safely capture him and transport him back to our hospital for x-rays and pain management. If you would like to donate towards the cost of his care, you can do so at mspca.org/bruno (thank you!). This is a restricted fund and anything raised beyond the cost of his care will be reserved for medical treatment of homeless animals or to support financial aid for those who need assistance at our hospital.
We are working with the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife to determine appropriate permanent placement for Bruno. Bruno is NOT available for adoption.
We understand that MANY of you have questions about where he ends up. We are currently working with the MA division of fisheries and wildlife and beginning the process of vetting sanctuary placements. We can assure you that his placement will be approached with utmost caution, care and diligence. We do not take this responsibility lightly and we will certainly continue to update you on his progress. Thank you all for your interest and concern!!” -Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – Angell.
