I agree with you but many states no longer allow rehab and release of wild cougar cubs. We were contacted about them too.
Not only do we have to fight to stop the captive breeding, but we also have to fight to allow the wild to stay wild.

Subject: [TAOSAccreditedOrganizations] 5 orphaned cougar cubs
I have had several emails back and forth with this vet asking if we rehabbed the cougars would it possible to release them back in WY. He hasn’t responded as to the legality of it, but only to the sentiment that farmers would never let it happen. I’d hate to see these cubs live their lives in cages if there is any chance of living free. Anyone out there know of a rehabber in WY that would take them on?
We just received five orphaned mountain lion kittens (2 males, 3 females). They are fairly small (5 lb) but appear to be eating on their own. Do you have any need for one or more of them? Thanks…
