Officers rescue bobcat kitten stuck in drain pipe

OWEGO, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Officers rescued a bobcat kitten that was stuck in a drain pipe in front of a residence in Owego.

A daycare worker and a group of children she was caring for were concerned for the kitten and called 911 for help.

Police say the bobcat sought shelter in the drain pipe for protection.

After the officers moved everyone away from the drain, the bobcat eventually crawled out. The kitten was captured after a quick chase.

The kitten was taken to a local wildlife rehabilitator and will be released into the wild when it’s self-sufficient.
