TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The Tallahassee Museum is asking the community to help them give a new home to two cougar cubs.

The organization is accepting donations to add two six-month-old cougars to its animal exhibit.

The cougar sisters are currently in Texas, the museum thinks it'll cost about $10,000 to bring the cubs to the Capital City. Officials tell us the community has already donated about 40 percent of that cost. 

Museum officials say their living collection of wildlife increases knowledge and understanding about our natural world, and the cougars will add to that education.  The playful cubs will also allow "visitors to view, discuss, and help us raise public awareness of the challenges faced by all of our native wildlife."

The Tallahassee Museum hopes to have the cubs here by the end of the year.

The Tallahassee Museum is located at 3945 Museum Drive. For more information, call (850) 575-8684 or check out their website.
