Posted: 07 January, 2013
OMAHA (AP) - Zoo officials in Omaha say five lion cubs were born last month and one is being bottle-fed at a hospital. Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium says the cubs were born Dec. 29. Four of the cubs are on display with their mother in the facility's Cat Complex. The cubs include two males and three females.
The female not on display is being bottle-fed at a hospital. She was smaller than the other cubs and couldn't compete for food. Officials say the cub is stronger and more vigorous.
