KEWAUNEE, Wis. (AP) - Kewaunee County authorities are seeking charges against four teens accused of unlocking a bobcat cage at a zoo, allowing one bobcat to briefly escape.
A Press-Gazette Media report (http://gbpg.net/1aVtQx1 ) says the suspects were identified using surveillance cameras and tips from social-media users.
Authorities say the four stole a set of keys for zoo pens and storage buildings at Bruemmer County Park last month. The suspects allegedly opened a bobcat cage and one bobcat escaped, but staff quickly recovered it.
Deputies are asking prosecutors to charge the four with theft and unauthorized release of animals.
The suspects are a 17-year-old Algoma boy, two 17-year-old Algoma girls and a 17-year-old Forestville girl.
