Chips and Sierra released back to the wild

By From page A9 | April 26, 2013

Chips the bobcat, whose rescue by a firefighter from the Chips Forest Fire in Plumas County last August gained national attention, was released back into “bobcat territory” in Lassen County on April 19, along with den mate Sierra. The juvenile cats are now eight months old and were judged by experienced rehabbers to be ready to be returned to their natural habitat. Their other den mates, Tuffy and Sutter, are being released together in another region.
