Two scared baby bobcats are now without their mother — thanks to a San Antonio, Texas, family who took the animals home to be pets after supposedly finding them in a shed on their property.
Originally, a member of the family contacted San Antonio Animal Care Services over the weekend claiming she found the animals in an alleyway and mistook them for stray kittens. The story then changed to finding them in the shed, and mistaking them for Bengal cats.
The bobcats were with the family for several days before being surrendered to animal control. Three people in the family were bitten and scratched by the cats when they tried to feed them.
