Rare Scottish Wildcat Kittens Born

Jul 29, 2017 by

Three rare Scottish wildcat kittens have been born at a wildlife centre as efforts continue to save the species from extinction.

The three kittens, born to mother Ness and father Zak, were born on April 11 at Highland Wildlife Park in Kingussie and are now becoming more independent of their mother.

The animals are beginning to leave their dens and explore their enclosures.

Scottish wildcats are under threat in the wild from habitat loss and cross-breeding with domestic cats, with numbers as low as 110.
