Five months after being hit by a car in the South Bay, a young bobcat was released back into the wild on Tuesday.

The bobcat was rushed to the hospital in November. She had a broken femur and required emergency surgery. Doctors installed a metal plate to help stabilize her thigh.

She was hesitant to walk on it at first, but has since shown enough strength to survive in the wild.

Wildlife officials released her near Blue Oak Ranch Reserve on Mount Hamilton in San Jose.
