Jill Hicks saw a kitten dash across a busy street and she sprang into action to save it. She chased it down and put it in her car. Once home, she realized the kitten was actually a wild bobcat.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Jill Hicks of Tennessee saw a kitten dash across a busy street and sprang into action to save it. She pulled her car over, chased the kitten down and took it home. She planned to give it a bath and put it in her bed. But after she got home, she realized the kitten was actually a wild bobcat. Hicks took the bobcat to a wildlife rescue center that will release it into a protected area, so no more street adventures for that little cat.
