LYONS - A family in Boulder County has had some visitors on their back porch for a week, but those visitors now have new homes.

The family in Lyons says two mountain lion cubs appeared on their back porch last week and have been in the area since then.

It appears the cubs were orphans and they could have starved to death.

on Christmas Eve, the Colorado Division of Wildlife came by to come get the cubs.

They were relocated the two cubs to a safer location.
