Nicholas's story begins on Christmas Day in 2020 when he was just a young cub. That fateful day, he and his mother were struck by a car in Orange County, CA. Tragically, Nicholas's mother lost her life instantly in the accident, leaving Nicholas severely injured.
Despite the grim circumstances, Nicholas's survival was nothing short of a miracle. He received immediate medical attention at a local animal hospital, where it was revealed that he had suffered pelvic fractures and blunt force trauma. Over the course of the next three months, he underwent multiple reconstructive surgeries and a demanding recovery process.
Nicholas's injuries were so severe that it became evident he could not be released back into the wild, given his ongoing medical needs. Adding to the complexity of his situation, the facility where he had been previously housed went bankrupt. In the face of these challenges, Bobbi and her team of dedicated individuals worked tirelessly, even during a snowstorm, to ensure Nicholas's rescue and bring him to LTB.
Today, Nicholas is leading a happy and healthy life at LTB. However, due to his past experiences, he does not feel comfortable with large groups of people, and as a result, he won't be available for visits. His well-being and recovery are a testament to the commitment and care provided by those who have supported him along his remarkable journey.
