Cougar kittens headed for zoo

Two cougar cubs that the PAWS Wildlife Center in Lynnwood took in late in August after their mother was killed near Duvall will be sent to the Memphis Zoo.
In a statement, PAWS said the group does not actively support sanctuaries or zoos, but recognizes that many zoos take an active role in public education. For more information, go to or call 425-742-4009, ext. 807.
