A California zoo has reported the rescue of a very young mountain lion cub, weighing less than 4 pounds, that was badly burned in a wildfire.

Photos show the male cub with singed paws under the care of the Oakland Zoo, where he was taken after being rescued Wednesday as firefighters battled the Zogg Fire near Redding. The fire burned off his whiskers.
