Denver Zoo hosting lion cubs from Qatar royals

 

 

Abuse-TigerCubDiesAtZoo2012DENVER (AP) – Three lion cubs from the royal family of Qatar are at the Denver Zoo.

 

The cubs were born June 24. The son of Qatar’s ruling emir had received the cubs’ parents as a gift from Sudan a few years ago. After the cubs were born, he reached out to U.S. zoos that could better care for them.

 

The Denver Zoo says it is hosting the two male cubs and one female cub until a long-term plan for them is determined.
