Officers at the Monroe Correction Complex said the bobcat was first spotted during a perimeter check around 11:30 p.m. Monday and was seen running through a razor-wire perimeter fence, Seattlepi.com reported Tuesday.
The bobcat soon made its way to the roof of the special offender unit and was sedated by a veterinarian with a tranquilizer gun shortly before dawn, officers said.
The feline was taken to the Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital in Snohomish with injuries to its paw and hindquarters.
