BELVIDERE, Ill. (WTVO) — Summerfield Zoo announced an adorable new arrival.

A new male bobcat kitten is the newest addition at Summerfield Zoo.

The owner of the zoo, Rick Anderson, welcomes the public to see the new animal and explains why they chose this particular creature.

” We are thrilled to announce the arrival of a male bobcat kitten named Rufus,” Anderson said. “We spent a lot of time looking for the right mate for our female bobcat Montana.  Montana has a lot of attitude and needed a mate that could handle that!  We feel that Rufus has just enough spunk!  For now, Rufus is available for viewing in the zoo’s animal nursery and in our animal shows.  We invite the public to come see him while he is still a part of our animal shows and can be seen up close.”

Summerfield Zoo admission is $10 per adult, $8 per senior, and $6 per child and all proceeds go to the care of all the animals, many of which are rescues. 

There are animal presentations, pony rides, the petting zoo, bottles for baby goats, Snack Shop and The Flying Reindeer Gift Shop
