We have 4 puma, 2 males and 2 females living in separate enclosures. Shakira who is our oldest female and now 3 years old (June 2014) having arrived when she was just 5 months. Brought to the refuge by her owner who had realised the cost of keeping a puma was too much and noticed her playfulness was becoming more aggressive as she grew.
Shakira is very friendly and loves people, although we must always treat her with respect and care. She has reproduced once now but due to space constraints the females are now separated from the males. During their mating period you can hear the puma cry out to the males.
Shakira, like her pop star name.
Help us to care of Shakira
