Background history: Mowgli was found orphaned and struggling to nurse from the body of his dead mother who was electrocuted by poachers, when he was just 10 weeks old. Alone and defenseless, Mowgli would never have been able to survive without his mother, and had to be rescued by the Wildlife SOS team. Initially scared and confused, this tiny cub was terrified of human beings but with time, Mowgli slowly started trusting his keepers and the vets with regular bottles of milk and lots of love. Today, he’s a healthy, stocky 3-year-old who feels like he’s the king of the centre, and is treated like it, too!
