BELLEVILLE, Il. (KMOV) – A bobcat is rescued by a couple after it was struck by a car on Town Hall Road near Belleville on Wednesday morning.

A passerby called her husband after finding the injured bobcat on the road while on her way to work.  The husband then arrived to the scene and loaded the unconscious bobcat into his vehicle to take to his house. 

The bobcat was then placed on a rug and covered while the man called the Treehouse Wildlife Center to recover the injured animal from his garage.

An official says the bobcat did not break any bones, but probably suffered a concussion.  The animal is in serious but stable condition at the Treehouse Wildlife Center in Dow.
