BRIDGEPORT - A baby bobcat rescued in Connecticut made his public debut at Bridgeport's Beardsley Zoo today.

The bobcat, named Beeze, is 16 weeks old and was brought to the zoo three months ago. The zoo's deputy director, Don Goff, says Beeze's mother had been killed by a car and Goff and his wife brought him to the zoo after they were contacted by the state.

Goff says Beeze won't be on display at the zoo, but will be used in the zoo's educational programs on local ecology.
