    Mexican police find tiger cub sent by express mail

    Mexican police find tiger cub sent by express mail

    People are stupid. The tiger was legally registered in Mexico. So this was not an attempt to smuggle to cat- just some dumb person who thought it was a good idea to express mail the tiger.

    Authorities in Mexico said they rescued a sedated tiger cub that had been placed in a plastic container and sent via express mail.

    The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection said police using a sniffer dog to root out contraband from a load of mail at the New Tlaquepaque Central Bus Station in Jalisco discovered a plastic box containing a Bengal tiger cub.

    That poor little cub. It must have been terrifed, nevermind hungry and thirsty. Thank goodness it's going to a wildlife rescue.

    The dogs that were sniffing the mail must have been surprised.

    This was a case of stupidity. At least it turned out well in the end. The cub no longer has to deal with its owner. It is in a wildlife sanctuary.
