DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - After being spotted by a northern Minnesota couple with a snare trap around its neck, a bobcat was captured and treated at the Wildwoods non profit animal rehabilitation center in Duluth.  The snare was slowly tightening around the neck of the bobcat and the Minnesota DNR approved the capture and treatment of the animal.  The bobcat had a deep wound around his neck from the snare and after it was removed and a period of healing, the 23 pound cat was released back into his home territory on Friday morning.
