COUGAR CUBSPuma concolor© ZUMA Press
In  October 2008, five hunters in Pope Valley, Calif., came across a female  mountain lion and her three cubs and began shooting at them. The mother  was killed, one cub was never seen again, and the two survivors were  taken to the Sonoma Wildlife Rescue. One of the cubs had a broken leg  that required his paw to be amputated, and the other had a minor  fracture, but today both are alive and well. The hunters were charged  with 22 counts of crimes, including animal cruelty, to which they pled  no contest in 2010. They each paid $10,000 in restitution to cover  veterinarian costs and were sentenced to 30 days of service at the  wildlife center. Kyla and Kuma will remain at Sonoma Wildlife  Rescue for the rest of their lives because California law prohibits  releasing them into the wild once they’ve been in captivity.
