Rare kit­ten of­fers hope for High­lands

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

CH­ESTER: A rare Scot­tish wild­cat kit­ten born at a zoo has been cap­tured on cam­era for the first time.

The fe­male kit­ten, which was born in Au­gust, could of­fer a “life­line for the species”, said bosses at Ch­ester Zoo yesterday.

Wild­cats, which are also known as High­land tigers, are Bri­tain’s rarest mam­mals and as few as 100 are es­ti­mated to re­main in the UK.
