Great News for Mountain Lions
NO MORE UNNECESSARY KILLINGS!
Thanks to all of you, landmark lion protection legislation became reality today when California Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 132.

It requires the use of nonlethal procedures for dealing with those lions that come into contact with humans, yet do not meet the threshold of imminent threat.

Bella is very quite and reserved. She spent her first few days in her new enclosure in her den. She had never had a den before, so the dark secluded area was quite appealing. Bella was spayed shortly after her arrival, so that she and TJ can live together again. They were a breeding pair at Savage Kingdom. Bella has turned around since her arrival and is quickly becoming a favorite among volunteers and guests alike.
