Baby Bobcat Dropped Off At Orlando Fire Station

Baby Bobcat

A man dropped off this "cute little kitten" at the Orlando Fire Station the other day. At first firefighters were told that it was a baby cheetah, but after further research, they found out it was a baby bobcat.

Back to Nature Wildlife Refuge and Education Center came by and confirmed that it was in fact a female bobcat about 2-weeks old.

According to the refuge, she had not been away from her mom for very long, the man that found her actually saved her life by bringing her in. She is very healthy and they are trying to pair her up with another bobcat to raise her.

The refuge will care for her until she is ready to be released back into the wild which will be when she's around 4 to 5 months old.

The Orlando Fire Dept shared this video of the baby girl the night she was dropped off.

"A kitten, or what we thought was one, was dropped off at Station 7 yesterday. The man said it was a baby ‘cheetah’. Crews started googling and realized the kitten had bobcat similarities. They notified @bntwildlife confirming it was a 2-week old female cub and are now nursing her."
