Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources discovers bobcat kitten den

The kittens were tagged before they were returned

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources shared pictures of the bobcat kittens they found earlier this week on their Facebook page

The DNR discovered the kittens after they used GPS collars to track a male and female bobcat and discovered they had mated and gave birth to the litter of four. 

The kittens were left "behind an abandoned barn under some old farm equipment" according to the Facebook post. The kittens were then promptly measured, weighed and ear tagged before the DNR returned them to their hiding spot.

The DNR shared the pictures with the public and advised people to admire the animals from a safe distance if they see them in the wild.
