CARLSBAD, NEW MEXICO — A three year old New Mexico boy is recovering tonight after he was attacked by a bobcat at the Carlsbad zoo. Carlsbad police say Ethan Kennedy and two adults crossed a double safety barrier in front of the bobcat exhibit to get up close to the animal's enclosure. That's when the bobcat reached through a fence with his paw and swiped the boy's face. Kennedy suffered cuts on his head and forehead. He was treated and released from the hospital. No charges have been filed. The family denies crossing the barrier.
