Bobcat kills chickens, doves and swan at Anneliese

An animal control officer and an OC Parks Ranger responded to Anneliese School on Laguna Canyon Road near El Toro Road Monday at 12:17 p.m. when it was reported that a bobcat was somehow stuck inside the aviary on campus.

On scene, it was determined that the bobcat, which had opened a hole in the roof, had killed 12 chickens, a swan and three doves kept in the school’s aviary.

Police said the damage to the aviary and animals amounted to $1900.

Animal control was able to safely capture the bobcat, which was then taken further out into the wilderness area and released.
