Police Rescue Bobcat Kitten

Police officers dedicate their lives to protect and serve the public.  One special officer took that oath to the next level, when he acted to aid a wild animal in distress.  Officer Robins of the Scottsdale Police Department spotted a young bobcat caught in traffic on a major roadway.  Afraid for it’s safety, he risked his own since approaching any wild animal can be dangerous.  He scooped up the baby and placed it in the back of the squad car.  


After a ride back to the station, the kitten was transferred from the car into an animal carrier.  Here is a closeup of the little tyke as it waits for transfer to a wildlife rescue group.


I would like to thank Officer Robins, The Scottsdale Police Department and all the law enforcement agencies who dedicate their lives to serving the public, humans and animals alike.  I post this story to let you know that your acts of kindness to animals are greatly appreciated!
