Thanks to an alert firefighting team, two weeks-old mountain lion cubs were rescued from a wildfire blaze in Three Mile Game Reserve, Montana. Crew-members digging a fire line heard animal noises sounding from beneath log. The debris obscured their view and hot conditions kept them from immediately intervening. Luckily, the crew’s helicopter managed to douse the flaming log with 600 gallons of water. Once extinguished, they extricated two sooty and soaked cubs and placed them in the care of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Care-takers estimate the cubs to be only weeks old with their eyes only just beginning to open fully.
The cubs’ prognosis is good though their re-introduction to the wild will be determined in the future.
