Wildlife Education Center Adds Bobcat Kitten, Bald Eagle

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife

The Salato Wildlife Education Center at Frankfort has added a young bald eagle and a bobcat kitten to its collection of exhibit animals.  The center says it recently acquired the 4-month-old bobcat kitten from a wildlife rehabilitation facility.

The center's acting director, Brent McCarty, says the new arrival will be separated from the center's adult bobcat until the kitten is older.

The kitten is expected to be on exhibit from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern time Tuesdays through Saturdays. The center encourages visitors to call ahead to confirm the kitten will be out. The number is (502) 564-7863.

The center says it also acquired a new bald eagle. The 3-year-old bird came from a rehabilitation center in Wyoming. The bird still displays juvenile plumage that's mostly brown throughout.
