A trio of 2-month-old mountain lions are headed to zoos after California wildlife officials scooped them up last week following their mother?s death and nursed them back to health.

The kittens were found in Siskiyou County in northern California wandering around a resident?s yard, fending for themselves.

?They were very young and transitioning from a meat diet, but they are still on a little bit of milk so that?s a very intensive time to take care of them,? said Steve Torres, a member of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Officials decided to send the kittens to zoos since they lost their mother at such a young age and will not be able to learn how to hunt.
