Niño, Tiger Found Unconscious in a Duffle Bag, Belongs in a Sanctuary

Niño the tiger has become the latest victim in the multibillion-dollar illegal animal trade. The two-month-old cub was found on the U.S. side of the Mexican-American border in Brownsville, Texas.

When three smugglers realized that U.S. Border Patrol was on to them, they hightailed it back across the border. But before they did so, they left a black duffle bag for the agents to find. In it was a small unconscious tiger that was very, very lucky to be alive.

Fortunately, the agents found it in time. Niño would surely have died of overheating, hunger or suffocation if he hadn’t been rescued.

Now the young cub is at the Brownsville Gladys Porter Zoo which has previously taken in tigers that were seized by officials in the area. The zoo sent some of the past rescued tigers to a sanctuary, while others remained at the park and still another died.

Care2 is asking that Gladys Porter Zoo consider what is best for Niño and, instead of keeping him at the zoo, it should send him to a sanctuary so he can live his life in relative peace. Please sign the petition and help ensure Niño, a tiger that has already gone through so much, doesn’t have to suffer anymore. Sign the petition telling the zoo that Niño belongs in a sanctuary.
