KAMLOOPS - An orphaned bobcat kitten got another chance at life after being rescued by conservation officers this summer.

Officers found the kitten orphaned near Osoyoos in July and with the help of the public were able to capture it. The kitten was then transferred to the B.C. Wildlife Park in Kamloops for rehabilitation.
