PHOENIX - A wildlife sanctuary is now caring for two bobcat kittens after they were turned in to an Arizona Humane Society shelter.
The Humane Society called the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Scottsdale 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 before they're released back into the wild.
Humane Society spokeswoman Bretta Nelson says the kittens 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.
