BOSTON – An African serval cat found injured in a Boston suburb last week will go to a wild cat sanctuary in Minnesota if an amputation proceeds as anticipated.

The male cat named “Bruno,” will go to The Wildcat Sanctuary in Sandstone, Minnesota.  The cat was found in a backyard in Lincoln, Massachusetts, with a back limb broken in two places.

The human society MSPCA says serval cats are not allowed to be owned in Massachusetts except for by zoos with a permit.

The cat will undergo surgery to amputate its back leg before moving to Minnesota.
