A mountain lion cub was seen near a road in Idyllwild, Southern California, by firemen from the Vista Grande Fire Station in September. She was terribly dehydrated, malnourished, and weighed less than 11 pounds at the time.
The poor tiny cub was rescued, thankfully. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife was approached by the firefighters for assistance. The agency then contacted the San Diego Humane Society, which agreed to take in the young lion. She received specialist care at the shelter and is now healthy and thriving after only five weeks.
She was given hydration therapy and drugs on a daily basis. She went from five to three small, nutritious meals each day in a matter of weeks. They include ground proteins and milk replacer to help her body adjust to solid foods gradually.
We’re happy to report that she’s gained over a pound, bringing her total weight to 22 pounds!” The San Diego Humane Society’s director of public relations, Nina Thompson, told the reporters.
This particular mountain lion cub is currently active and receptive. She is currently actively participating in the therapy process in order to make a full recovery. Hope to hear more excellent news about her in the near future!
