Baby bobcat caught on Gonzaga Campus

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - It was a huge surprise for people on Gonzaga's campus Saturday when they found a bobcat roaming around.

Washington State game officials say they think the animal is a baby, based on its size and color. They don't know for sure where the cat came from but say it may have wandered over to the campus from the Centennial Trail area.

Game officials tranquilized the animal and put it in a cage. They say they'll take the animal to a safe place.
