Back to the wild ... Marty Hansen released Skittles the Bobcat into a remote area of the Badlands National Park on Wednesday, April 5. “She’ll be alright once we get her out there,” said Hansen as he and Conservation Officer Todd Enders put the loaded cage in the back of Hansen’s pickup.
Friends were only half joking when they offered Marty Hansen boxes of tissue for when he had to release Skittles, the bobcat, back into the wild.
Marty and his wife, Debbie, had taken the six-or-so week old kitten off of the hands of Game, Fish and Parks officials. Someone, who mistakenly thought they were doing the right thing, had “rescued” it when they found it in the wild.
