Mountain lion cub saved by San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife, firefighters

An orphaned mountain lion cub who arrived at San Diego Humane Society’s Project Wildlife, Ramona Campus was in critical condition but is finally feeling better.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, California — A mountain lion cub was spotted by firefighters from the Vista Grande Fire Station near a road in Idyllwild on Sept. 2, according to the San Diego Humane Society. She was semiconscious, extremely emaciated, dehydrated, weak and had tremors. The firefighters contacted the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who reached out to San Diego Humane Society.

The organization’s Project Wildlife team went to work providing lifesaving treatment for the 10.5-pound cub, estimated to be only 14 weeks old. She received daily fluid therapy and medications. Within a couple of weeks, she progressed from three to five small, nutritious meals per day. They include ground proteins with milk replacer, to allow her body a slow transition to solid foods.

The federal government rejected funding for a major Blue Hill Avenue bus project. Now what?

“No one’s walking away from it right now, but we just don’t know what the game plan is yet,” said Julia Wallerce, who leads the Boston office of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, which has pressed for more bus-only lanes. “This is a big bang for your buck kind of corridor. We’ve just got to get enough bucks to fund it.”

The commissioner of the Boston Transportation Department, Greg Rooney, said the grant decision was obviously disappointing, but the Blue Hill Avenue project remains a priority for Mayor Martin J. Walsh. The city plans to make smaller improvements in the short-term, such as repainting crosswalks, and Rooney pledged to find funding elsewhere — either through the city’s budget, the MBTA’s, or some combination.
