MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Two mountain lion cubs that were rescued by firefighters in western Montana in August have a new home in Ohio.

KECI-TV (https://bit.ly/XUoYDV ) reports the male cubs arrived at the Columbus Zoo in Powell, Ohio, on Wednesday.

They’re staying in the zoo’s hospital for now because they’re still being bottle fed. They’ll eventually move to a permanent zoo habitat.

Staff has named the cubs Lewis and Clark as a nod to their Montana roots.

The cubs were found at just a few weeks old by a crew fighting a blaze in the Sapphire Mountains east of Florence. The cubs were hiding under a burning log.
