  • Border Patrol agents find tiger cub in duffel bag

Border patrol agents found an abandoned duffel bag with a tiger cub inside it on the US-Mexico border. It was suffering from heat-related symptoms when it was brought to the zoo. A red toy sat near a blue blanket on which the tiger slept the night before.

The agency said the male tiger is three or four months old and has been turned over to a local zoo.

Demaar said the young cat is now doing much better.

"The way he responds to humans leads us to believe that he has been hand-raised up until this point. It's in reasonably good body condition after (Monday's) ordeal". "And, well, now it seems to be quite happy".

"Not an average day in the field", said Irma Chapa, a spokeswoman for the Rio Grande Valley sector of CBP, in a tweet Monday. In the messages, he talked about receiving money for exotic animals.

Latin America, one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, has emerged as a fulcrum in the endangered and exotic species trade feeding the booming USA market.

Yup. This little guy is expected to make a full recovery.
