An orphaned tiger cub was found on Monday, February 25, in a very poor condition by the hunters of Borisovsky hunting estate. Specialists of Primorsky Hunting Management Department took measures to rescue of the cub and investigate the situation.
The found animal was so exhausted that it could be taken practically barehanded. The cub seemed to be looking for help near the human settlement.
According to Inspection Tiger the orphaned tiger cub will be transferred to the rehabilitation center and will be its first resident.
"The state of health of the tiger cub is satisfactory, the animal is recovering fast. Now it is getting prepared for the transfer to the rehabilitation center for endangered species recently built in Primorye. All necessary documents are ready," - the specialist of Inspection Tiger says.
Unfortunately, it is not clear what happened to the cub’s mother. The investigation gave no results yet.
