The Bengal tiger club confiscated by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in San Diego on August 23 was doing much better two days later, following some rest and relaxation at San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
The zoo shared a video of the cub on August 25 after he was brought to the Paul Harter Veterinary Hospital at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for a health check. Veterinary staff took care of the animal, determining that he seemed to be in good health.
The principal veterinarian at the zoo, Jim Oosterhuis, said he believed the cub to be “between five and six weeks old,” and said it “weighs in at a little over six pounds.”
Oosterhuis also said that staff would have their hands full for the next few weeks, as the cub looks like he will be teething very soon.
