Birth of rare lion cubs announced

Asiatic lion Shiva, the mother of the three cubs, looks out over her domain in the Besancon zoo, eastern France, Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014. The Besancon zoo held off announcing the December 31 2013 births until this week, afraid the two females and a male might not survive. There are about 300 Asiatic lions in the wild, all in an Indian reserve, according to the WWF. It's one of the world's rarest species. (AP Photo/Laurent Cipriani)
