Rescued Mountain Lion CubsLoading
  • Three mountain lion cubs await their next home at the California Department Fish and Wildlife on Monday December 02, 2013 in Rancho Cordova, CA. The CA Dept. of Fish & Wildlife rescued three mountain lion cubs near the town of Callahan, in Siskiyou County, after residents reported the cubs wandering around alone. The cubs are thought to be about three months old. Their mother, who would normally raise the cubs until they are 18 months old, has not been located and nobody knows what happened to her. The cubs are being cared for by DFW near Nimbus Hatchery in Rancho Cordova and the female left for Kansas to a new cat enclosure and the two males will depart for Fort Worth, TX. They will likely have to be kept in captivity for the rest of their lives. Although a new state law, SB 132, takes effect in January that allows the state to rescue and rehabilitate orphaned mountain lions, these are considered too young for rehabilitation and CA has no appropriate facilities.
