The cubs are being raised with minimum contact with humans in order to prepare them for life in the wild. They remain aggressive at feeding times and will soon begin the process of learning to hunt. We hope to release the cubs when they are approximately 18 months old, the same age at which they would leave their mother in the wild.
The cubs have also made a big impression on the people from the village where they were caught. CCB has been invited to hold an educational workshop for the community and our education and community officers will be visiting the village later this month.
