Adorable tiger cub found in mail by Mexican sniffer dog

Adorable tiger cub found in mail by Mexican sniffer dog”

Mexican inspectors have found tigers in all sorts of situations: on leashes, in neighbours' yards and wandering the streets.

A tiger cub has been found alive and well after someone tried to mail it interstate in Mexico.

The baby tiger was only detected when a sniffer dog searching for contraband noticed something odd about the container.

The sedated cub had been placed in a plastic container.

A year ago a teen was arrested in California for smuggling a tiger into the USA, or at least trying to, confessing that "he purchased the cub on the streets of Tijuana for $300 from someone who was walking a full-size tiger on a leash".

Although the animal was dehydrated, authorities said it was otherwise well. (AP) A sniffer dog detected the cub.

The Associated Press reports the tiger was en route from the western state of Jalisco to the central state of Queretaro.

Despite the tiger having the correct registry papers, it was seized due to animal mistreatment.
