Michigan wildlife officials are investigating how a dead bobcat ended up in a tree in Montcalm County.

The animal’s carcass was found Tuesday in the Flat River State Game Area. Officials with Michigan Department of Natural Resources plan to seek a necropsy to find out how the bobcat died.

John Niewoonder is a wildlife biologist for the DNR and says the bobcat was a healthy looking male weighing 25 to 30 pounds.

Niewoonder says that most likely it was hit by a car and then placed in the tree.
