Cougar cub name to be unveiled on KVOE on Tuesday

If you haven't made your donation for which name should be attached to the David Traylor Zoo's newest resident, you're about out of time.


5 pm Monday is the deadline for choosing between Blue, Flint, Oliver, Wally and Warrior for the new cougar cub. Blue and Flint have been the most popular names so far, with Flint holding a slim lead at last word.

The cub will be officially named Tuesday, and zoo director Lisa Keith will join KVOE's Morning Show at 8:45 am with the people's choice.

The cub came to Emporia from Washington state after his mother was illegally killed. He replaces Sampson, who was a zoo resident for 16 years before he had to be euthanized a few weeks ago.

To donate, go to the David Traylor zoo mountain lion exhibit or the Zoo Education Center.
