Three lion cubs, born at the Wildlife Waystation on Sept. 14, made their public debut today in Lake View Terrace.

The triplets, two female and one male, were a surprise to the staff as Tangassi, the father of the cubs, was thought to have had a vasectomy.

Founder Martine Colette said the waystation has a strict no-breeding policy.

The trio are being raised by Gypsy, their mother. The father lives in an adjacent enclosure.
