RE: [TAOSAccreditedOrganizations] 5 orphaned cougar cubs

Thanks and let me know if you need us to take a couple of them.


I agree that sending them to legitimate sanctuaries is a step in the right direction and perhaps a professional, united front making a reasonable case for their going back to the wild would be helpful to future cubs.

I’ve been told that they will not consider rehab or release of these cubs.

Therefore, I have offered our services to help these cubs.


We do need to educate and help change states like OR, WY, MT and Canada on allowing rehab and release of cougars.  But we also fought long and hard earlier in year for agencies to place cubs at sanctuaries vs. killing them or only allowing placement at AZA zoos.  Therefore, I am at least hopeful that they have considered sanctuaries for these cubs because if it was only AZA, they would most likely be put down.

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…
