PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Zoo has taken in a 2-month-old bobcat kitten that was removed from the wild near Eagle Point, Oregon, by well-intentioned but misguided humans.
The zoo said in a statement Thursday that the kitten will remain behind the scenes while he awaits transport to another zoo that can house him permanently.
The cub was taken from the woods in July and wildlife authorities determined that after the human contact, he could not survive on his own if released back into the wild.
