ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – A new litter of lynx kittens arrived at the Seneca Park Zoo on Tuesday.

In an announcement Wednesday, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello said that 9-year-old mother Bianca gave birth to the first successful Canada lynx litter at the Rochester zoo.

“Each day they are getting stronger, but we continue to be cautious and Zoo staff is monitoring the kittens 24/7," said Seneca Park Zoo Director Steve Lacy.

The zoo said visitors will have to wait a few weeks for the kittens to be on habitat because their mother will be keeping them out of sight inside the den.
