FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A young bobcat at Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort is growing, and officials say there are only a few days left to see her as a kitten before the season ends.
Acting Manager Brent McCarty says the bobcat isn’t likely to still be kitten-sized when the center reopens March 1.
The kitten will remain on display from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST Tuesdays through Saturdays until Salato closes for the season at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Once the bobcat reaches adult size, she will be placed on permanent exhibit.
The center closes through the winter to allow for maintenance and upgrades to exhibits, trails and enclosures.
The center is operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources off U.S. 60 about 1 ½ miles west of the U.S. 127 intersection.
