Rare fishing kitten born at Isle of Man wildlife park

An endangered fishing cat kitten has been born at the Curraghs Wildlife Park in the Isle of Man.
The rare breed is described as "endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) with just 200 living in captivity world-wide.
Park manager Kathleen Graham said: "This kitten is only one of about 10 born in the past year worldwide, so this is incredibly exciting news."
The cats, originally from Asia, have developed webbed feet and live a semi-aquatic lifestyle.
