The city of Keller saved a bobcat Friday from a near cat-astrophe.
The female bobcat was found “hopelessly tangled” in a soccer goal at the Keller Sports Park on Friday morning, according to the city of Keller. An animal services officer tranquilized the cat, cut her out of the net, nicknamed her after soccer star Mia Hamm and released her in a wooded area nearby when she woke up.
Parks employees have said they’ve seen the bobcat before.
“Hopefully she’s learned to avoid the nets, though!” the city’s Facebook page wrote.
