VLADIVOSTOK, December 30. /TASS/. An orphaned four-month-old tiger cub has been found in the Far East and brought to the Leopard Land national park’s rescue centre, an official there said on Wednesday.
The female cub was found by dogs in the garden of a local resident, who contacted park authorities.
"It was exhausted and needed immediate veterinarian aid," the official said. "The cub is now in a stable condition but it is too early to make forecasts regarding her health."
Female tigers usually take care of their offspring for two years. Most abandoned tiger cubs have lost their mothers to poachers. Leopard Land staff launched a search for the tiger’s mother and other cubs who could be on the verge of starvation.
Leopard Land national park was founded in 2012, covering 280,000 hectares. The territory is home to 70 leopards and 30 Siberian tigers. Some 540 tigers live in Russia’s Far East.
