A baby mountain lion has a new home a ZooAmerica in Hershey.

His name is Rainier and he's only two months old. He was found on the front porch of a home in Washington State.

The baby wildcat was malnourished and alone. Officials couldn't find his mother and they think she was hit by a car or illegally shot.

The kitten arrived at the zoo last month and his caregivers say he's much stronger now.

"When he was found he was malnourished and dehydrated, so he already was going downhill, and luckily they rushed him to a veterinary clinic where they got him immediate care to bring him around," says Dale Snyder of ZooAmerica.

You can visit Rainier at ZooAmerica on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sunday.
