This baby mountain lion nearly lost his life in one of California’s raging wildfires. He was lucky enough to be spotted by rescuers early last week. This 3, possibly 4 month old mountain lion cub was found singed from the flames and incredibly underweight.
“The young cat was walking but appeared to be emaciated and injured. The volunteers were able to capture it without much difficulty,” the CDFW said.
The cub is being monitored as he recovers. Sadly, because of his injuries and the fact that he’s now being cared for by humans, he won’t be able to return to the wild.
