Lion Cubs Born Into Caged Life at Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo

Lion Cubs Born Into Caged Life at Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo

There are two new additions at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo.

Cooey, a female lion on loan from Ontario, gave birth to one male and one female cub on September 24th.

“We are thrilled to have lion cubs born at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm and Zoo,” said John Moran, manager of the Zoo.

The cubs are doing well, gaining weight and being raised by their mother under the observation of staff.

Those wanting to see the cubs in person will have to wait until the spring of 2012.

“It’s important to allow the cubs to grow and mature before exposing them to the outdoor exhibit,” said Moran.

The Zoo will provide regular updates on the progress of the cubs throughout the fall and winter.
