North Carolina Zoo has three new lion cubs

UPDATED: 12:22 pm EST November 21, 2006

ASHEBORO, N.C. — Officials with the North Carolina Zoo said three lion-cubs born Oct. 24 are doing well.

The zoo’s female lion, Sala, gave birth to the three cubs. It marked just the second lion-cub birthing at the park since 1983.

Zoo officials said it will be about two-three weeks before the sex of the cubs can be determined.

Because of the cub’s fragility, particularly in the first few weeks of their life, and the need for the mother to keep the cubs isolated, they will not be exhibited to the public until at least spring, officials said.
