Oakland Zoo Cares for Mountain Lion Cubs Rescued from Wildfire
Dr. Herman and her vet staff examined the cubs and thankfully, both of these cubs appear to be in good health. The zoo says they’ll give them a loving temporary home at the hospital until a more permanent home can be found.
The two female cubs will join “Captain Cal” a male mountain lion cub who was rescued by a firefighter a few weeks ago in Redding who brought him to the Oakland Zoo for recovery
Today, we moved Captain Cal to the ward, right next door to our two rescued sister mountain lions.
The girls were comfortable but Captain is more shy and will take a little more time getting used to the “new digs.”
