New at the Zoo: Three Orphaned Cougar Cubs!

New at the Zoo: Three Orphaned Cougar Cubs!

Categories: Latest News,Zoo Archive

Here are the Cougar cubs (two females and one male) on the night they arrived at our Zoo earlier this month. Their mother was shot by a hunter in Washington who discovered the cubs and turned them over to wildlife officials who then transferred them to the care of Oregon Zoo. They are just about five weeks old now and still on the bottle. They will be ready to greet Zoo visitors sometime in December. We’ll be posting lots of photos and videos in the meantime!
