A bobcat is treated at the Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital in Monroe on Tuesday. The bobcat wandered onto the grounds of Washington state's second-largest prison late Monday and climbed onto a roof, where it was shot with a tranquilizer gun early Tuesday, officials said. The animal was being treated for cuts it apparently suffered from some razor-wire fencing at the Monroe Correctional Complex, about 30 miles northeast of Seattle, prison spokeswoman Susan Biller said. It will be released back into the wild.
