Baby Lions Naming Contest

A Sweet Surprise.

At Wildlife Waystation, we have a strict non-breeding policy, but sometimes nature holds a surprise in her hands. Tangassi, one of our younger male lions, was taken in with the understanding that he had already been through a vasectomy. After a number of years at Wildlife Waystation, he was paired up with Gypsy for companionship and we all got a surprise. Three lion cubs - two girls and one boy - were born September 14. The triplets are being raised by their mother, and Tangassi is in the adjacent enclosure to keep their family bond strong.

"No one was more surprised than we were, we take great precautions to spay and neuter our animals as necessary."
