Mexico: Sedated tiger cub found in express mail

Mexican inspectors are making headlines as a dog sniffer discovered a strange passenger in the express mail: a tiger cub.

Environmental protection made the announcement Wednesday, ABC released a short video clip and the tiger cub was rescued, making headlines across the globe. Check out the Inside Edition clip below.

The cub was sedated and packed into a plastic container, found by a dog looking for contraband.

The tiger was mailed in the western state of Jalisco to an address in the central state of Queretaro. It was dehydrated but otherwise well, and was handed over to an animal management center.

 

The tiger’s papers were apparently in order, but it was seized because the mailing constituted mistreatment.

The agency says the case is under investigation.

Last year a teen was arrested in California for smuggling a tiger into the U.S., or at least trying to, confessing that “he purchased the cub on the streets of Tijuana for $300 from someone who was walking a full-size tiger on a leash.”
