Sad news from the High Desert Museum today. Ochoco, the Museum's beloved bobcat, died Thursday at the age of 20, apparently from liver cancer. He had been a resident at the museum since 2005. Dana Whitelaw, the Museum’s Vice President for Programs, says he was a huge draw for all visitors and there will be a real void with his passing.  "He’s been with the museum since 2005, and he's been a wonderful educational ambassador here at the museum, and will be greatly missed by staff, volunteers, of course our visitors. And really was loved by thousands, who met him through the museum's Educational Wildlife Program." Whitelaw says Ochoco was one of the oldest living bobcats in captivity, and had twice as long a life span compared to cats "in the wild." She says there is no plans to obtain another bobcat; but they work closely with wildlife officials, and should an opportunity come up, they could find another bobcat.
