At approximately 7:15 a.m. on November 13, 2012, two students spotted a bobcat on our campus near the auditorium construction site. Administrators quickly contacted Animal Control and School Safety. School Safety secured the area until Period 2 began and students were in class.
At 9:07 a.m. Pueblo implemented a lock down so that when the bobcat was tranquilized, there would not be any danger to our students. After three tranquilizer shots and 75 minutes for them to take effect, the bobcat appeared on the roof and fell asleep. The bobcat was secured in a crate by Animal Control and the lockdown was ended. Animal Control plans to release the bobcat near the Tortolita Mountains.
In September of 2010, a raccoon visited our campus and now we can add a bobcat to that list. We assume they want to be Warriors too!
