Hope or LaserFur? Help name rescued mountain lion cubs

This week, the community has spoken, and two emaciated mountain lion cubs rescued off the streets of Burbank are one step closer to getting names.

Readers will have until Monday to vote on the top six names submitted.

The cubs, referred to as No. 1 and No. 2, are being rehabilitated at Zoo to You, a nonprofit conservation and educational organization based in Paso Robles. The cubs will likely make appearances at schools and universities and need real names, says David Jackson, Zoo to You’s director.

Jackson asked the Burbank community to help name the cubs after something that shows a connection to the area.


A few runner-up names were “Amelia and Starlet,” “Lost and Found” and “Hope and Victory.”


Top six names:

- Lucy and Ethel


- Scratchy and Itchy

- Oliva and Magnolia

- LaserFur and the Fangster

- Willow and Laurel

- Hope and Carson
