DENVER - What is cuter than a cougar cub? How about three mountain lion cubs at play!
In a video posted to YouTube by the Oregon Zoo, three rescued cougar orphans are shown leaping, chewing and cuddling with staff at the zoo's medical care center.
The cubs -- one male and two females -- were brought to the zoo by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife after their mother was shot by a hunter.
But after five weeks of slurping down formula, and winning the hearts of veterinarians, the cubs will soon head to their new home at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, N.C.
