In Memory of Montana

Postby egroegart » Thu Jul 05, 2012 1:01 pm

Yesterday, July 4th our local Sanctuary lost a wonderful Eurasian Lynx named Montana. He was very loved and had a wonderful life. They don't know how it happened, but when they found him last week he had a shattered foot. It was shattered beyond belief. THey did surgery and put pins in, and he made it through the surgery fine. But yesterday the caretaker found him lifeless. They don't know why. Just horrible. Please keep your thoughts with Montana, and his girlfriend another Eurasian lynx Kisa Marie as she is going to be lost without him.

I have a funny picture of Montana at our last get together when one of our members was shooting pics of him, he turned his butt and sprayed him. I just happened to snap a shot of it in action. I have been looking for the pic and will post it when I find it.

RIP Montana.

That's too bad. At least he was loved. It could have been a fat embolism from the shattered leg. Lots of fat in bone marrow and it can cause a blockage when it gets free, so basically a heart attack or stoke caused by the broken leg. Nothing that could have been done about it.

Thank you everyone. We are going to the sanctuary on Monday to spend some time with Kisa and help out there too.

Tamandua, is that basically like a bloodclot? I was thinking blood clot as soon as they told me he had passed.

It has the same results but it is a lump of fat not a blood clot that does the damage. When a bone is seriously shattered sometimes some of that fat can get free and wind up in the blood stream. A blood clot from the injury is just as likely though.
