These cougar cubs, all siblings, all female, were orphaned in Oregon and were cared for at the Oregon Zoo's veterinary department until they could be found homes at other facilities.

Noted. Beautiful photos. So they wold usually only stay with their mom until they loose their spots, about 2 years. It is very sad that they will never learn the skills to be on their own and will have to remain in captivity.
Thank You Cher.

I especially appreciated the explanatory notes about the AZA!

I know many of you are rabidly anti-zoo because you know NOTHING about modern zoos, the AZA, accreditation processes, etc.

We ARE all on the same side! And these babies will grow up to educate and sensitize children and adults.

Sometimes life deal you aces and eights. As pam w says, these babes will survive. Even with Mom, their chances aren't good in the wild.
