I am terribly conflicted when it comes to captive animals, especially gorgeous specimens such as these two, fully mature Mountain Lions. While I fully appreciate that we would never get to enjoy animals such as these if not for captivity, it distresses me, much, that we are in essence keeping them prisoners without giving them a choice or chance. To me, it is like slavery!
We have seen these two mountain lions since they were BABY cubs! That must have been about 8 or 9 years ago. We somehow got invited to an evening reception to welcome these to cubs that had been acquired from ‘the Rockies’. They were little. No bigger than a small dog. And now … Fully grown and so majestic and graceful. I just hope that they are happy.
Seeing these Mountain Lions is always the highlight of my visit to the Science Center. I am awe of them. Such beautiful animals.
Definitely worth going to see. Enjoy.
