Bobcat survives 50 miles trapped in grill of a car in Virginia

RICHMOND, Virginia -- The director of a Virginia animal care and control facility, her father and her co-worker experienced what they are calling a Thanksgiving miracle involving a bobcat.

Richmond Animal Care and Control Director Christie Peters said that a woman driving to work Thursday morning knew that she had hit something in Gloucester County.

However, it was not until she parked that she discovered a bobcat lodged in the grill of her Prius.

The animal had survived a 50-mile, nearly hour-long journey to the city.
