Oscar the Red River Zoo Rodent Control Cat

by Bob Harris

When it comes to Rodent Control the Red River Zoo relies on the stealth-like hunting of "Oscar" the Cat. Oscar was found by one of the Zoo's Vet Tech's 2-1/2 years ago in a garbage can. (Hence, Oscar...like Sesame Street). He has a front paw injury, was nursed back to health and has been on the zoo grounds ever since. His bed is of camel fur and he calls the hay barn behind the camel exhibit home. Sally Jacobson, Business Manager at the Red River Zoo says Oscar is doing a exceptional job.
