Orphaned mountain lion cub makes recovery at Oakland Zoo

The mountain lion cub first spotted by hikers in San Mateo County earlier this month is regaining its strength at the Oakland Zoo, ABC7 reports.

The 4-5 month-old cub nicknamed “Rose,” was found emaciated and dehydrated. She also suffered significant blood loss due to fleas and ticks, according to zoo officials.

Staff at the Oakland Zoo are currently working to find Rose a permanent home as there is no space available at the zoo and she won’t be able to return to her natural habitat without basic survival skills.
