Captain Cal is the first Mountain Lion the zoo took in. The Zoo tweeted Captain Cal likely has some fire-related damage to his skin, and some parasites.
Captain Cal update: this bright and feisty orphaned mountain lion rescued from the #ZoggFire still has a long road to recovery.— Oakland Zoo (@oakzoo) October 8, 2020
Daily, our Vet Hospital staff changes the bandages on his feet.
Thankfully, Captain Cal remains bright and active, and has a great appetite despite his injuries, the zoo said.
Both females cubs will be introduced to Captain Cal soon.
