The OKC Zoo lately welcomed a litter of orphaned mountain lion cubs rescued from the wild. The cubs, two males and a feminine, are roughly 9-weeks-old and arrived on the OKC Zoo in late January. Born within the Black Hills of South Dakota, the mountain lion cubs had been discovered by recreation officers with the South Dakota Division of Sport, Fish and Parks.
Realizing the cubs’ mom was deceased and so they had been too younger to outlive on their very own, recreation officers instantly intervened and commenced offering 24/7 look after the orphaned cubs. Additionally they contacted the Affiliation of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to find a everlasting residence for the litter as a result of recovered cubs can not return to the wild in keeping with South Dakota state protocol.
