Bobcat kittens turned in to Arizona Humane Society

PHOENIX - A wildlife sanctuary is now caring for two bobcat kittens which were turned in to an Arizona Humane Society shelter in Phoenix.

The Humane Society called the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center to pick up the kittens because the Humane Society isn't equipped to handle bobcats.

The center is a nonprofit that rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured, orphaned, displaced and abandoned wild animals. Most are released back into the wild.

Humane Society spokeswoman Bretta Nelson says "Bobby and Socks" appear to be about 9 weeks old.

She says people who encounter a wild animal appearing to be orphaned should observe the animal for a few days because mothers often return after looking for food.
