BELVIDERE, Ill. (WIFR) -- Summerfield Zoo is now home to a new male bobcat kitten.

The kitten, named Rufus, will be a mate for the zoo’s female bobcat Montana.

"We spent a lot time looking for the right mate for our female bobcat Montana," said Rick Anderson, owner of Summerfield Zoo. "Montana has a lot of attitude and needed a mate that could handle that."

Rufus is available for viewing in the zoo’s animal nursery and in animal shows.

Admission is $10 per adult, $8 per senior, and $6 per child. Proceeds go the care of animals, many of which are rescues.
