A Texas woman thought she had rescued two stray kittens and took them home to care for them before realising they were in fact wild bobcats.
The lady later changed her story to say her brother had thought he was gifting her two Begal Kittens, but lied as she didn't want to get him in trouble.
Jane Dinscore and her family members realised something was wrong when they were bitten by the wild animals and called official services for help.
The Animal Care Services (ACS) removed the animals from her custody and took them to be cared for in a ''wild'' environment.
In a post on the ACS Facebook, they wrote: ''Because the fragile window of opportunity to reunite them with their mother has most likely passed, our goal now is to keep them wild and after a year or so, release them to a protected habitat where humans will never lay eyes on them.''
