The National Zoological Garden said it was looking out for a female dog with puppies of two or three days old to feed three lion cubs that were born this morning.

Assistant Director Anoma Priyardarshani said the lioness had avoided feeding the cubs since they were born.

“We were waiting for the lioness to feed the cubs till this evening. But she rejected feeding them. We decided to feed them with specially imported milk powder meant for lions. But they need to be fed by an animal so that they could get the required immunization,” she said.

Ms. Priyadarshani said the lioness, Sachina aged four years, had rejected her cub on an earlier occasion as well.
