During the spring of 2015, a bobcat gave birth near the backup generator at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant Explosive Destruction System (PCAPP EDS).
After a few days, the bobcat moved her kittens, which is normal for many bobcat mothers. When workers at the PCAPP EDS site noticed the bobcat climbing the fence, they opened the gate to make the move a little easier.
At last report, all three kittens survived. According to Clark Jones, cultural and natural resource manager, the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot provided good conditions last year for prey survival (such as rabbits, prairie dogs, and rodents) and he expects that to continue this year. “This will probably lead to higher than average survival for bobcat young as there will be an abundance of food,” Clark said.
