Puma cub born in Russian zoo

9/19/2006 3:09:44 PM

A puma cub was born to Kalina and Graf pumas in Krasnoyarsk zoo “Royev Ruchey” on September, 17. The cub feels well, but its mother refused to feed the newborn, so the zoo workers are taking urgent measures to find a wet nurse for the cub, as the scientific department of the flora and fauna park reported.

A big dog will suit the role of a wet nurse best of all. Several dog owners have already responded to the request, so the zoo workers hope they will manage to grow a healthy animal.

It is worth reminding that a contest on wet nurses for three tiger cubs, whose mother refused to feed them, had been announced in the zoo a year ago. The cubs were fed by domestic dog Nayda then.
