Since moving to a property along the Bear River in Franklin County, Nevada, Drue Stafford has seen lot of wildlife. Deer, elk, eagles, turkeys and more. A few weeks ago, he got a once in a lifetime sighting – three mountain lion cubs. And not only that, the young cubs walked right up to his front porch!
Drue and his wife were looking out the front window when they spotted the cubs. The three cats saunter right up to Drue’s porch as he’s filming. The one cub looks curiously inside and his siblings also come over.
Moments earlier, Drue had seen some wild turkeys running around, so he figures the cubs were tracking wild turkeys.
Drue told the Idaho State Journal that he contacted Fish and Game officers after the young cats hung out his barn overnight and their mother never showed up.
Fish and Game officers told Drue they were sure the cubs were without a mother and at risk, so they eventually caught the trio and took them to a man who cares for wild orphans. The mountain lions will be given new homes in the spring.
