Timothea decided to venture out from her den one day. Unfortunately this kit’s curious nature led her to climb on a deck chair where she promptly got her leg caught.
Someone heard her howls of pain and called for help. But as she tried to wiggle free Timothea fractured her leg in three places rendering the amputation unavoidable.
As returning to the wild with only three legs would prove too dangerous for her, Timothea came to live at the Ecomuseum Zoo where you can see her play and explore happily and safely.
