Medicine Park Aquarium builds habitats for local bobcat, coyote

Eight-year-old bobcat Bonnie and 10-year-old coyote Moriah are native to southwest Oklahoma, and now thanks to the generous support of local individuals, they get to stay in the region.

Both animals have lived on Fort Sill since they were born, but this year, the base decided they could no longer house the animals, according to Doug Kemper, executive director of the Medicine Park Aquarium and Natural Sciences Center.

“They had a budget cut this last year, which eliminated several employees,” Kempers said, “so they no longer had enough man power to maintain the living collection.”
