Lion Cub Names to be Announced in The Daily News and bronxzoo.com on Sunday

Thousands Have Placed a Vote


Moxie, left, born in November 2008, joins her younger siblings in the African Plains exhibit at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo.  Still a youngster herself, she enjoys playing with her two little sisters and brother. The new cubs were born in January and introduced to the public in April.  The whole family – now on exhibit for the first time – is getting along famously. They also have become famous as The Daily News asked New Yorkers to help name the cubs. Now that thousands of New Yorkers have voted, the names will be announced Sunday in The Daily News and at www.bronxzoo.com.
 
Everyone who participated in the vote at bronxzoo.com will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card courtesy of the Belmont Business Improvement District (BBID). Gift cards can be redeemed at participating businesses within the BBID.
