A trio of cougar cubs are delighting patrons at the Toledo Zoo. They are the facility’s newest animals, having arrived from Washington.

The cubs–two from the same litter, and one slightly older–were orphaned on the West Coast, and zookeepers were told there was a “human-wildlife conflict.”

Now, everybody at the Ohio zoo seems to be getting along just fine. The younger three-week-old sister-cubs, Cascade and Columbia, are being bottle-fed around the clock. Rainer, between 10 and 12 weeks old, has already progressed to solid food.

The next steps will be for the trio to make a public debut together. Meanwhile, zoo-goers are invited to daily bottle-feedings to see in person just how adorable these cubs really are.
