Curious Cougar by xthumbtakx Curious Cougar by xthumbtakx
Three cougar kittens, two females and one male, were orphaned in January 2014 after a hunter killed their mother in Eastern Oregon. They were rescued and raised by the Oregon Zoo until they were weaned and mature enough to be transferred to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC.

Learn more about their story here & 
here.

They are happy and healthy now at 6 months old! "Charismatic mammals" indeed!

Asheboro, NC

Also at the NC Zoo this weekend...

Cuteness!
Those enormous ears remind one that this cute as a button cub is going to grow up to be a 150 pound killer one day.
But they're still so cute now. Squee emoticon
