– GUESTS SHOULD SOON SEE CUBS AND KAYA IN ROCKY MOUNTAIN WILD –
The three mountain lion cubs who were orphaned in Washington in late May are growing, playing and getting settled in their new home with their new “grandma” Kaya, 13-year-old CMZoo mountain lion.
Kaya came to CMZoo in 2006, from Wyoming, with her three brothers. The four cubs were unfortunately also orphaned thirteen years ago. Kaya’s brothers, Yuma, Motega and Tocho, have since passed due to age-related issues. While CMZoo keepers and veterinary staff work through age-related health issues with Kaya, who is blind and arthritic, they’re hopeful the new cubs (which we also call kittens, because they’re still only 10 weeks old) quickly acclimate to their new home in Rocky Mountain Wild.
Rocky Mountain Wild Senior Lead Keeper, Rebecca Zwicker, shares the latest update on the cubs, Kaya’s health, and when she hopes guests can see these adorable new CMZoo residents.
