On July 18, 2017, a mother bobcat was struck and killed in the 33803 zip code area of Lakeland, FL. People who work in this area, sent photos of the 2 pound, orphaned baby on July 21 to us and we have searched the area and set up humane traps to try and capture the kitten.
He isn’t old enough to survive on his own and needs several months of rehab before he can be safely returned to the wild.
Please do not touch the kitten! If you are bitten he will be killed and tested for rabies by the CDC.
