Ashkii, a 10 month-old cougar cub charges a ball which fell from his early Christmas present at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, Calif. Ashkii, along with his siblings Takoda and Yazhi were treated to presents filled with balls, pine cones, and other treats. The three cougars were acquired by the park after being orphaned at six weeks of age, being dropped off at a Dept. of Fish & Game office in Idaho. — AP
