In Mexico, a tiger cub was injected with sedatives and sent by mail in a plastic boxBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/in-mexico-a-tiger-cub-was-injected-with-sedatives-and-sent-by-mail-in-a-plastic-box
Customs inspectors in Mexico found a live Bengal tiger cub about two months old in one of the parcels. A service dog looking for contraband was very suspicious of one plastic container. After opening the box, people saw a small predator there.
The tiger cub didn't make any noise because he was given a dose of sedatives before being sent. Holes were made in the box for air, but no water or food was put in, so the animal was severely dehydrated — but generally healthy. Now the tiger is in the local animal rescue center.
The package with the tiger cub was supposed to be sent from the western state of Jalisco to the central state of Queretaro. The accompanying documents to the parcel were seized, and the police, together with the environmental protection agency, launched an investigation: such a shipment was illegal, and the conditions were unsuitable for the animal.
There are less than 2500 Bengal tigers in the world, this species is endangered.
