OC Zoo will Celebrate Orphaned Mountain Lion Cubs New Home


If you are looking for a fun even next weekend, this looks like a fun event at the Orange County Zoo. Photo provided by OC Parks.
WHAT: Two mountain lion cubs orphaned in Oregon will make their official debut at the OC Zoo at this public event. Orange County Supervisor Bill Campbell, Third District, will introduce the cubs in their newly renovated enclosure and will announce a contest to name the cougar siblings. Zoo staff will demonstrate training the cubs get to make medical exams easier and the behavior enrichment exercises the cubs take part in. The cubs, eight months old, could not have survived in the wild. Like other such animals, they found a permanent home at the zoo, which features non-releasable animals that are native to OC Parks and the desert southwest. 
WHERE: The OC Zoo, inside Irvine Regional Park at 1 Irvine Park Road in Orange, Calif. 
WHEN: Saturday, March 31 at 12 p.m.

COST: Public: Zoo entry is $2, children under 2 enter for free. Irvine Regional Park parking fee is $5.
